Tells the story of Catherine Sloper, the plain, obedient daughter of the well-to-do Dr. August Sloper of Washington Square. When a handsome, man-about-town proposes to Catherine, her father forbids the marriage because he believes the man to be after Catherine s fortune & future inheritance. The conflict between father, daughter, & suitor provokes consequences in the lives of all three that make this story one of James's most piercingly memorable. This handsomely designed edition includes a portfolio of archival photos that provide a visual & social portrait of Washington Square & lower Manhattan during the era in which James wrote this novel.
