    why, edith, why?

    i decided a while back to read some travel lit. i found this book on here, and since i had enjoyed a couple of edith's novels, i thought this would be good. it is terrible. it seems like something thrown together by an editor. the book started, in fact, as articles for a magazine, but edith should have worked harder on intergrating them into a book.

    Wharton at her best. Absolutely charming descriptions of travel

    Wharton at her best. Absolutely charming descriptions of travel through France, the houses, the people, the countryside. Delicious repartee with her traveling companion, Henry James. The new e-book edition is beautifully produced, and the introduction by travel writer Lavinia Spalding is a Must Read. Highly recommended!
