Book description

Penguin Classics presents Henry James Washington Square, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by William Hope.  Why, you must take me or leave me ... You cant please your father and me both; you must choose between us  When timid and plain Catherine Sloper acquires a dashing and determined suitor, her  father, convinced that the young man is nothing more than a fortune-hunter, decides to put a stop to their romance. Torn between her desire to win her fathers love and approval and her passion for the first man who has ever declared his love for her, Catherine faces an agonising dilemma, and becomes all too aware of the restrictions that others seek to place on her freedom. Jamess masterly novel deftly interweaves the public and private faces of nineteenth-century New York society; it is also a deeply moving study of innocence destroyed.  Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
