Professional reviews

"One of James's more accessible novels, Washington Square tells of an American heiress whose martinet father frowns upon her one and only suitor. Here we can enjoy the subtle psychology and nuanced phrasing that later grew so complex as to baffle the casual reader. And enjoy it we do in John McDonough's sensitive interpretation. He perfectly captures the author's patrician manner, reading in appropriately measured tones that deliver every shade of subtext. As this is one of the first psychological novels, the heroine's personality is of paramount importance; McDonough's impersonation admirably captures her transition from shy insecurity to confirmed spinsterhood. Thanks to McDonough, the tape is an excellent introduction to a great American author. Y.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
