Overview

Four stories written by the great American fiction writer Edith Wharton and read by terrific actors, including Maria Tucci and Kathleen Chalfant, make up this two-CD set, recorded live at The Mount, Wharton's house and gardens which she designed and built in Lenox, Massachusetts. The first woman to receive a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the first woman to be granted full membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Wharton is known for writing stories that reveal a keen satire of upper-class manners, an unblinking recognition of passion's limits, and a powerfully observant style.
