Henry James’s novella probes the social and emotional complications that follow the overly familiar but innocent behavior of Daisy Miller, a newly rich American traveling in Switzerland and Rome. This recording also includes the preface that James wrote later in life for his New York edition. Initially, the choice of a female reader might seem misguided for a story that is filtered through the consciousness of Frederick Winterbourne, an American expatriate who observes and analyzes Daisy’s behavior. However, by maintaining a vigorous, satisfying pace, Susan O’Malley holds the listener’s attention admirably. Her reading is intelligent and agreeable.
