“Not surprisingly, Henry misrepresented a lot of what had happened. His fan
the essayist Max Beerbohm made a sour list of twenty instances in which he
thought that James had falsified documents. Certainly, Henry fabulated and

events in the wrong time – all the usual things that writers do. He did
this, as writers will, in pursuit of the story he wanted to tell…”

- Adam Gopnik on Henry James in The New Yorker, January 18, 2016
