A quintessential Henry James classic is finally given the attention it deserves. It's unclear why more Henry James fans aren't familiar with this wicked early work, as it's James at his scathing best - piercing, elegant and ahead of his time. The story of an American hack journalist in Europe, The Reverberator is an early example of James' fascination with Americans confronting Europe's version of civilised society. Yet here he gives the theme a sly twist, as the Europeans find themselves enamoured with a particularly uncivil brand of Americanism.
