Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time
Set amid the splendor of London drawing rooms and gilded Venetian palazzos, The Wings of the Dove is the story of Milly Theale, a naive, doomed American heiress, and a pair of lovers, Kate Croy and Merton Densher, who conspire to obtain her fortune. In this witty tragedy of treachery, self-deception, and betrayal, Henry James weaves together three ill-fated and wholly human destinies unexpectedly linked by desire, greed, and salvation. As Amy Bloom writes in her Introduction, “The Wings of the Dove is a novel of intimacy. . . . [James] gives us passion, he gives us love in its terrible and enchanting forms.”
Amy Bloom is the author of two collections of short stories, including A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You; a novel, Love Invents Us; and a nonfiction book, Normal. Her work has appeared in various publications and is widely anthologized. She lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale.
