James, Henry: A London Life and Other Tales, v.1. 22 May 2008.
‘A London Life and Other Tales’ (1889)
Contains the novella ‘A London Life,’ plus three short stories: ‘The Patagonia’, ‘The Liar’ and ‘Mrs. Temperly.’
A London Life is a novella by Henry James, first published in Scribner's Magazine in 1888. The plot revolves around a crumbling marriage and its impact on many other people, especially Laura Wing, the sister of the soon-to-be-divorced wife. Laura is a classic Jamesian "central consciousness," whose reflections and emotions color the presentation of the storyline and the other characters. The tale is notable for its straightforward, even hard-edged approach to sexuality and divorce. This might reflect the influence of French naturalism on James during the 1880s.
