This is the second autobiographal work by Henry James, published in 1914. It covers James' early manhood and tells of "the obscure hurt" that kept him out of the Civil War, his first efforts at writing fiction, and the early death of his beloved cousin, Minny Temple, from tuberculosis. This is one of the last books Henry James saw though the press before his stroke in December, 1915, and his death three months later. That biographical fact gives the book a special poignance that enriches James' loving memories of his family and friends.
