Overview

Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937), was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. She grew up in upper-class pre-WWI society and many of her stories critique this culture, using subtle irony. In this volume are brought together her six most acclaimed works:

The Age of Innocence,
Ethan Frome,
The House of Mirth,
Summer,
The Custom of the Country and
The Reef.

Enjoy the beauty of Wharton's writing in this great collection, where the characters are beautifully captured, they struggle between duty and love in a society that dreads scandal more than disease and they wrestle courageously against their sometimes tragic fates. Wharton writes fine and intense narratives and is the greatest critic of her society.
