       -- 8. Conclusion 
520    This book explores the extraordinary proliferation of 
       novels based on Henry James's life and works published 
       between 2001 and 2016, the centenary of his death. Part 
       One concentrates on biofictions about James by David Lodge
       and Colm Toibin, and those written from the perspective of
       the key female figures in his life. Part Two explores 
       appropriations of The Portrait of a Lady, The Turn of the 
       Screw, and The Ambassadors. The book articulates the 
       developments in biographical and adaptive writing that 
       enabled millennial writers to engage so explicitly with 
       James, locates the sources of his appeal, and explores the
       different forms of engagement taken. Layne analyses how 
       these manifestations of James's legacy might function 
       differently for knowing versus unknowing readers, and how 
       they might perform the role of literary criticism. 
       Overarching themes include ideas of queering, the concern 
       with seeking redress, and the frustrated quest for origin,
       authenticity, or 'the real thing'
