    Writing in The Guardian, Edmund White describes this sequel to Henry James’ The Portrait of a Lady as ‘both a remarkable novel in its own right and a superb pastiche’. The novel opens in London, where Isabel Osmond (née Archer) is coming to terms with the recent disclosure of her husband’s years-long betrayal. Grievously wronged, she determines to resume her youthful quest for freedom and independence. But first she must return to Italy and confront her husband, and that isn’t going to be easy. Banville has in the past described James as his principal literary influence, and in continuing the adventures of Isabel he is indulging in the ultimate form of fandom, one that fellow James fans and admirers of Banville’s own novels are sure to greatly enjoy.
