Using shades of irony to capture moments of surprise and sadness, Edith Wharton and Henry James play with reality—in the work of a portrait artist and in the secret love of a “fallen” woman for her daughter.

Henry James (1843–1916) wrote numerous stories, essays, plays, and novels, including The Portrait of a Lady and The Ambassadors.
