What Maisie Knew
by Henry James
Publisher: Herbert S. Stone 1897
Number of pages: 470
Strikingly modern in its subject and narrative voice, this 1897 novel centers on a child's view of her parents' bitter divorce. Maisie develops a precocious maturity as she observes the adults' irresponsible and immoral behavior. Rather than a gloomy parable of innocence corrupted, the tale abounds in dark humor and savage wit.
