Meet the Author

Edith Wharton (1862-1937) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, poet, designer and short story writer. Born Edith Newbold Jones to a wealthy New York family, the saying "Keeping up with the Joneses" is said to refer to her father's family. Wharton's privileged upbringing gave her valuable insight into America's upper classes, which were the primary subject of her insightful and entertaining novels. She lived the final decades of her life in France, becoming an ardent supporter of French Imperialism. Her novel, THE AGE OF INNOCENCE was completed in France and earned the first Pulitzer Prize by a woman.

Wow!! Wouldn't have imagined that a risque topic would be part of this period time piece. Truly, if I hadn't seen the movie with Liam Neeson, I don't think I would have read this American classic but I sure am glad now that I did. Wharton did a tremendous job comparing the dreary existence of Zeena with the light and playfulness of Mattie. It is a very easy read and definitely gets the checkmark for American literature!!

This novel is so limited in scope that it's better described as a short story that overstays its welcome. There's not enough passion to make it a tragedy. Oh, the color of the cover is grey... Accurate.
