  • "A fictionalized portrayal of the life of American author Henry James, focusing on five significant years in the author's life, starting in 1895."
  • "It is January 1895 and the play Guy Domville, Henry James, which he hopes will provide a fortune, proves to be a flop in London theater. Opening with this disaster, the novel The Master goes into the next five years of the life of Henry James. During that time, he moved to Rye in Sussex. There he wrote his masterpiece The Turn of the Screw, a nouvelle which incorporates many autobiographical details. Toibin portrays his life within a cultured family before the American Civil War, his trips to Paris, Rome, Venice or London, but mostly discusses with great insight the creative process of an exceptional storyteller and his way of dealing with their identity."
  • "" ... In stunningly resonant prose, Toibin captures the loneliness and longing, the hope and despair of a man who never married, never resolved his sexual identity, and whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed him and those he tried to love. The emoyional intensity of Toibin's portrait of James is riveting. Time and again, James, a master of psychological subtlety in his fiction, proves blind to his own heart and incapable of reconciling his dreams of passion with his own fragility."

  • "Nineteenth-century writer Henry James is heartbroken when his first play performs poorly in contrast to Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" and struggles with subsequent doubts about his sexual identity."@en
  • "Henry James, born into one of America's first intellectual families, left his country to live in Paris, Rome, Venice and London among privileged artists and writers. The emotional intensity of the portrait of Jame is riveting."
  • "Like Michael Cunningham in -- The Washington Post Book World). In The Master, he has written his most ambitious and heartbreaking novel, an extraordinarily inventive encounter with a character at the cusp of the modern age, elusive to his own friends and even family, yet astonishingly vivid in these pages."@en
