When Henry James died he left behind a series of notebooks filled with ideas for novels and stories that he never wrote.

Now ten contemporary authors – Colm Toibin, Rose Tremain, Jonathan Coe, Paul Theroux, Amit Chaudhuri, Giles Foden, Joseph O’Neill, Lynne Truss, Susie Boyt and Tessa Hadley – have written new short stories based on these germs of ideas. Differing dramatically in setting and style, these stories are modern interpretations of the richly suggestive and enticing notes that Henry James left behind, offering a fresh and original approach to a canonical literary author.

‘Each story is different, but the hand of the master is clearly detectable throughout, a gentle guide that shapes the telling.’ Irish Times
