Thread: Help - Henry James christening present

    Thumbs up Help - Henry James christening present

    My son, Henry James, is to be christened (baptised) and his great-grandmother wants to get him something to remember her by. I thought she could give a H.J book (namesake) and inscribe a few words to him in the front cover.
    Which title would you recommend?
    Many thanks

    Hazel, given your post, which is endearing, I'd recommend The Awkward Age, and The Aspern Papers as a runner up, because it deals with legacy.
