60 words about a Penguin 60:
Henry James
The Lesson of the Master

Books  Are we suppose to agree with James’s thesis that being an artist and having a pleasurable life are mutually exclusive?

Certainly some of greatest art has been the product of panic and pain.

The apprentice and mentor are supposed to be metaphors for the author’s own warring personality traits it seems and both entirely capable of gaining the upper hand.
