Description

THE OUTCRY is James' last novel. At the heart of the story is a questions of attribution: Lord Theign owns a painting which has for generations been known as a Moretto, but which may in fact be a Montavano, and whereas a Moretto, costing a mere 10,000 pounds holds no interest whatsoever for the acquisitive Mr Bender, a Montavano - at 100,000 pounds - most definitely does. In typical Jamesian fashion the vulgarities of the attribution and notoriety of the painting are kept off stage. Written first as a play and then novelised, THE OUTCRY is only available in this Penguin edition.show more
