About the Book

''Notes Of A Son And Brother'' is an autobiography written by Sir Henry James in 1914. The book details James' formative years, including his initial attempts at fiction writing, "the obscure hurt" that prevented him from serving in the Civil War, and the early death of his cherished cousin Minny Temple from illness. James starts using family letters in this second chapter of his autobiography, particularly those from his father Henry James Sr., and brother William. According to academic research, James added his own edits to the letters. James continued writing while earning his first fourteen dollars, which he excitedly examined. He started publishing critical essays and short tales in publications including The Nation, The North American Review, and The Atlantic Monthly. William, James' older brother, was torn between art and science before deciding on the latter, but it would be many years before he achieved the famed philosopher and psychologist status. James paints a vivid picture of his somewhat eccentric father, who pushed his kids "be something" rather than settle for "simple doing," in his book. Before having a stroke in December 1915 and passing away three months later.
