The Aspern Papers

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Henry James

Narrated By: Adrian Cronauer

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: January 1986

Duration: 3 hours 36 minutes


The unnamed narrator of Henry James' novella is an editor and literary critic obsessed with the life and work of Jeffrey Aspern, a long-deceased American poet, who died at an appropriately Romantic and tragic young age. No one is going to prevent him from bringing the secrets hidden in the paper to light for a curious public, least of all an old world spinster living out her last days in Venice, and her mousy young niece, Miss Tina. This cat-and-mouse game continues, detailed in James' inimitable manner, until it culminates in a single withering glance.
