"I adore James. He is one of those rare authors who, thanks to the Victorian and post-Victorian age, were able to show the tremendous social pressure weighing on individuals and their way of opposing it through a very subtle notion of good manners, a fragmentation of truth into a number of particles large enough so they can digest it. And his analysis of the notion of Evil is one of the most acute there is. " Claude Chabrol
