Henry James 100 Years -- February 28, 2016

American author Henry James died 100 years ago today, on 28-February-1916.  I don't think I have read any of his novels since I was in college.  I remember some people were surprised to learn that he was American.  He spent much of his life living in Great Britain, but he always wrote about Americans.  His characters always had interior lives.  People are still making movies out of his books and stories.
I like the design.
Like many late 19th and early 20th Century authors, like Joseph Conrad and Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James tried writing plays.  He didn't have much success.
