The physical thing: there's one thing I can say about Melville House's "Art of the Novella" series, and that's that they have a striking trade dress. (Reminiscent, in many ways, of Faber and Faber's frequently minimalist design.)

As to the content: first off, it's Henry James being funny. It's not really something you'd expect from the man best known for "The Turn of the Screw", but it's the truth. Sadly, however, Victorian-era English-language literature has never really been my thing. As such, the humour mostly falls flat with me, and I'm left wondering what someone without the Victorian's stylistic choices could have done with it. ( )
