"The Bostonians, " a witty and biting satire on American life, turns romantic convention on its head. The story explores the obsessive affections of the radical Olive Chancellor for Verena Tarrant, a gifted young speaker in the feminist movement. A bitter tug of war erupts when Olive''s cousin Basil Ransom becomes equally besotted. In the eerie, unforgettable "The Turn of the Screw, " a naive governess begins to see the ghosts her young charges do -- or do they?
