Current Reads: Madam Crowl's Ghost & Other Stories by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. In 1888 Henry James wrote "There was the customary novel by Mr. Le Fanu for the bedside, the ideal reading in a country house for the hours after midnight." [These] are tales selected from Le Fanu's stories which mostly appeared in The Dublin University Magazine and other periodicals, and their haunting, sinister qualities still have an enormous appeal for the modern reader.
