A spirited young American heads to Europe to find herself in this timeless and essential American novel…

The heroine of this powerful novel is the spirited young American Isabel Archer. Blessed by nature and fortune, she journeys to Europe to seek the full realization of her potential—or in modern terms, “to find herself”—but what awaits her there may prove to be her undoing. During her journey, wooers vie for her attention, including an English aristocrat, a perfect American gentleman, and a sensitive expatriate. But it is only after the ingenue falls prey to the schemes of an infinitely sophisticated older woman that her life takes on its true form.

Henry James (1843-1916) spent his early life in America, but often traveled with his celebrated family to Europe. After briefly attending Harvard, he began to contribute both criticism and tales to magazines. Later, he visited Europe and began Roderick Hudson. Late in 1875, he settled in Paris, where he met Turgenev, Flaubert, and Zola and wrote The American. In 1876, he moved to London, where two years later he achieved international fame with Daisy Miller. His other famous works include The Portrait of a Lady (1881), The Princess Casamassima (1886), The Wings of the Dove (1902), The Ambassadors (1903), and The Golden Bowl (1904). In 1915, a few months before his death, he became a British subject.

Regina Barreca, professor of English at the University of Connecticut, edited The Penguin Book of Women’s Humor and wrote They Used to Call Me Snow White…But I Drifted; Perfect Husbands (and Other Fairy Tales); and Sweet Revenge: The Wicked Delights of Getting Even. She writes for the Chicago Tribune, The Hartford Courant, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Ms., and other publications, and has appeared, often as a repeat guest, on 20/20, 48 Hours, and Today.

Colm Toibin was born in Ireland in 1955 and lives in Dublin. He is the author of five novels including the Booker-shortlisted The Blackwater Lightship and The Master, and of the short story collection Mothers and Sons. His nonfiction includes The Sign of the Cross and Love in a Dark Time.

The Portrait of a Lady is entirely successful in giving one the sense of having met somebody far too radiantly good for this world.”—Rebecca West
