He was the son of Henry James Sr. and the brother of renowned philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.
This book takes a humorous look at the British-American divide
This book takes a humorous look at the British-American divide. There are multiple readers, all fairly good - they take the trouble to make the dialogue expressive, and some of them attempt to use different accents as appropriate, with what struck me as success (I don't know from accents).
