The Master (Scribner)
Colm Tóibín, winner of this year's Los Angeles Times award for fiction, reveals the difficulties of writing about the life of Henry James. It is impossible to imitate the Master's complex style--that goes without saying. But how to handle the discretions of James' hidden sexual desires, how to give shape to the invisible presences in James' world?
Read an excerpt from The Master.
