Henry James - The Turn of The Screw & The Aspern Papers (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781853260698
With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Claire Seymour, University of Kent at Canterbury.
James was a master of the novella - the kind of tale that is shorter than a novel but longer than a short story - and many of his major themes are developed in such tales.
Each of which deals with a characteristically Jamesian subject. The Aspern Papers (1888) and The Turn of the Screw (1898) have one obvious thing in common: they are both narrated, unreliably, by their protagonists.
The Turn of the Screw is the classic ghost story for which James is most remembered. Set in a country house, it is a chilling tale of the supernatural told by a master of the genre.
The Aspern Papers is a tale of Americans in Europe, a theme in which Henry James is at his most assured and accomplished. The author cleverly evokes the drama of comédie humaine against the settings of a Venetian palace.

"Two extremely readable tales, Turn Of The Screw is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys an atmospheric storyline, and The Aspern Papers an interesting tale which would make a good melodrama if adapted for the big screen." - Amazon Review.
