Recently I discovered David Lodge’s book, The Year of Henry James. It’s about how he wrote a novel with the writer Henry James as one of the main characters. It’s a historical fiction of sorts. Being a fan of Henry James, I was attracted to it when I found it at the bookstore. When he published his book, it was one of a few novels which included Henry James as the main character. This book discusses the coincidences regarding this situation. It also gives the reader some insights into the life of an experienced and accomplished novelist. As a would-be novelist, I’m finding the peek enjoyable and interesting.
