About the Author

Edith Wharton (January 24, 1862 - August 11, 1937) was an American novelist, short story writer, and designer. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930. Wharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive novels and short stories of social and psychological insight. She was well acquainted with many of her era's other literary and public figures, including Theodore Roosevelt.

I do not know why i love these Wharton books so is something about the overly long sentences that read so naturally that you don't realize how long they are....the way she is able to convey so much in merely the description of one's face...the fascinating world of upper class 'manners' of that period.......and i could go on and on......I'm gonna be disappointed when i have completed all of her books....gonna space the remaining volumes out over time.....i just don't want them to end!
