Following its successful run of unabridged Dickens titles, Naxos AudioBooks turns its attention to Henry James, with further titles planned for 2017. In James’s The Wings of the Dove, Milly Theale is a young, beautiful and fabulously wealthy American. When she arrives in London and meets the equally beautiful but impoverished Kate Croy, they form an intimate friendship. But nothing is as it seems: materialism, romance, self-delusion and ultimately fatal illness insidiously contaminate the glamorous social whirl. This story came into public light most recently in 1997 when a film adaptation starring Helena Bonham Carter was released. Juliet Stevenson is one of the finest audiobook readers around. She is consistently showered with critical acclaim for her thoughtful, intelligent readings.
