Henry James

A while ago I came across this gem in a charity shop and had to buy it – quite possibly the most lurid cover I’ve ever seen a ghost story…and thinking about the repressed tensions which seep through the story (and made flesh in Jack Clayton’s glorious film adaptation, ‘The Innocents’) perhaps not too inappropriate after all..?*

* and published by ‘World Distributors’ who, as all Doctor Who fans know, were responsible for the classic Doctor Who Annuals.
