Dear munificent friends : Henry James's letters to four women. Tamara L. Follini, Susan Elizabeth Gunter. Henry James was not only a prolific novelist but also a prolific letter writer.

These women were Alice, Henry James's sister-in-law, Mrs. Cadwalader Jones, Lady Louisa Wolseley and Mrs. Frances Prothero, and the letters were also "selected.

Henry James was not only a prolific novelist but also a prolific letter writer. This edition of 150 previously unpublished letters to four of his female contemporaries reveals James to be a warm, witty, and astute commentator on a world now lost. The James revealed in these engaging letters is a vital, clever, and lively man with an intense interest in affairs of his day. The letters present a delightful picture of Victorian-Edwardian culture, including health cures (Fletcherizing and going to health spas), literary scandals (he feared writer Edith Wharton would be destroyed by her mad husband Teddy), domestic affairs (the marriage market, child rearing, antiquing, decorating, and gardening), and historical events (the Civil War, Queen Victoria's funeral, England's great Coal Strike, the Dreyfus case, and World War I).
