The Turn of the Screw (book)

  • Type: Novella
  • Length: 171 pages

The Turn of the Screw is a notable ghost story by American author Henry James. - AsNotedIn

The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be, I remember no comment uttered till somebody happened to say that it was the only case he had met in which such a visitation had fallen on a child.
