I still haven't finished it but I continue to be floored by it. I can hardly believe this book was written in the 19th century -- it feels so modern, without feeling out of its time, and the psychological insight is astounding. It's just resonating a lot with me. I read Washington Square probably 10 years ago; I liked it, but I don't remember being nearly so bowled over by its prescience. What's the next James I should read?
