  • "None the less Charles Waterlow, who thought he had charming parts, held that the best way hadn't been taken to make a man of him, and the zeal with which the painter appeared to have proposed to repair that mistake was founded in esteem, though it sometimes flowered in freedom. Waterlow combined in odd fashion many of the forms of the Parisian studio with the moral and social ideas of Brooklyn Long Island, where the seeds of his strictness had been sown."
  • "The Reverberator tells the tale of Francie Dosson, a naïve American in Paris, who is duped into revealing her fiancé's family secrets to a slick tabloid journalist. The chaos that ensues as a result threatens the happiness of everyone involved. James, no fan of publicity himself, delivers a delightful character study in this whimsical gem."
  • "Henry James, one of the great literary stylists, an incomparable analyst of human relations, and--who knew'--a startlingly prescient media critic. This little-known novel from one of his most fertile creative periods could have been written for today's news-hungry, celebrity-obsessed times. Pretty American Francie Dosson travels to France with her father and less pretty sister. En route they meet scandal sheet journalist George Flack, who promptly falls for Francie. On their arrival in Paris he tours the Dosson sisters through its high society and bohemian circles, unwittingly introducing her to his rival Gaston Probert. Flack--a forerunner of a phone-hacker if ever there was one--is dismayed by this competition for the guileless Francie, but soon finds a way to turn the situation to his advantage, as well as that of his readers. The Reverberator is James at his most incisive, not to mention most caustic, and perhaps funniest, and one of very few of his novels to win the praise of his harshest critic: his brother William James. It's also a remarkably timely take on privacy, press freedoms, and our own inquisitive natures. ebook ISBN: 978-1-61219-157-7 From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
