Fiction: MRS. OSMOND, A NOVEL

By John Banville

From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sea, a new novel that extends the story of Isabel Archer, an unhappily married woman living in the late 19th century who is the heroine of Henry James The Portrait of a Lady.  Isabelle decides to go to Italy to live with the husband she rejected.  Henry James would have enjoyed the plot twists.
