The Turn of the Screw
Read by Penelope Rawlins with Ben Elliot
Perhaps the most brilliantly successful ghost story ever written, The Turn of the Screw creates a terrifyingly believable impression of children so corrupted by evil that they remain deceptive pictures of innocent beauty. Their governess must struggle alone to confront and exorcise the demons which she believes possess their souls… Published in 1898, the story was immediately met with glowing reviews. It remains one of Henry James’s most popular works.

An unnamed governess arrives at a sprawling English estate and immediately finds herself both charmed and mystified by her new charges – the darling young niece and nephew of a wealthy absentee landlord. Ben Elliot, who reads the prologue, and Penelope Rawlins combine a skilful delivery of Henry James’s careful 19th-century prose with a more modern pace that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. Rawlins’s voice subtly becomes more emotional as this masterpiece, a blend of early literary realism and ghost story, advances towards a captivating finish. Sometimes a classic sounds like a classic because it’s that good and, in this case, that scary. A listening treat.
