Summary

This terse and startling novel, written just beforeThe Spoils of PoyntonandWhat Maisie Knew,is the story of a struggle for possessionand of its devastating consequences. Three women seek to secure the affections of one man, while he, in turn, tries to satisfy them all. But in the middle of this contest of wills stands his unwitting and vulnerable young daughter. The savage conclusion ofThe Other Housemakes it one of the most disturbing and memorable of Henry James's depictions of the uncontrollable passions that lie beneath the polished veneer of civilized life. Oh blestOther House, which gives me thus at every step a precedent, a divine little light to walk by... Henry James
