A nouveau riche American falls in love with a beautiful Frenchwoman but is rejected by her aristocratic family in this masterly tale. Henry James, the great chronicler of cross-cultural encounters, wrote The American early in his career. The contrast of Old and New World values - depicted with James' characteristic grace, eloquence, and subtle wit - constitutes a precursor to many of the author's later works.
