Si bien Henry James fue un refinado prosista de dramas costumbristas, no menos impressive es su aportación al ámbito de los angeles intriga y el suspense. Profundamente interesado en el terreno de lo sobrenatural, no dejó sin explorar ningún tipo de experiencia extrasensorial, ni se abstuvo de analizar al detalle los demonios que, en cualesquiera formas, perturban al ser humano.

Este volumen recoge el grueso de su narrativa breve fantástica y fantasmagórica. Precede a los relatos el magistral estudio de Leon Edel -considerado unánimemente el mayor especialista en los angeles obra de James del siglo XX-, quien también redactó una minuciosa nota preliminar para cada uno de ellos. Como colofón, reproducimos el ensayo del propio James «¿Hay vida después de l. a. muerte? », que refleja las inquietudes del autor sobre el más allá.

Reseña:
«Fantasmas es los angeles selección más completa de narrativa de terror de Henry James y constituye los angeles mejor manera de asomarse a su obra gótica. »
P. Unamuno, El Mundo

«Henry James siempre es inspirador y decididamente contemporáneo. Jaume Bonfill, de Penguin Clásicos afirma que su relevancia no solo es histórica, ya que tiene "recursos y sorpresas que los lectores de hoy siguen percibiendo como novedosos, y que asimismo aún ponen en práctica, por ejemplo, los guionistas de cine o televisión". »
Ana Llurba, Letras Libres

«A él le interesa el drama psicológico, el desgarro o los angeles epifanía, de ahí tantas adaptaciones al cine. »
Núria Escur, l. a. Vanguardia

Sample text

He took the call and curtly responded, ‘This is not the time to call’ and hung up. I was surprised at his tone but said nothing. Later in the conversation, I asked him who was on the call and ‘My mother’ was his indifferent response. ’ I asked. ‘Almost seventy. I tell her not to call me in office. She doesn’t listen. I don’t take calls from home, when I am in the office’ was his response. I soon came to know that he did not even take calls from his eight-year-old daughter, leave alone from his wife.

I did most of the talking in this meeting, a bad start for a coach. He hardly looked at me throughout the session and, at the end, I had that uncomfortable question of whether I could ever reach out or be of any help to John. The organization had recently done a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) profiling for their top management and John emerged an ISTJ (introversion, sensing, thinking, judgement), a type that I could easily relate with having seen him. I needed more inputs about John and we agreed on a 360-degree assessment.

As Sunny recalls, this was a period of excitement and great learning. He worked day and night, at times even without a break for days together.
