Author Info
Edith Wharton
Born to a wealthy New York family, Edith Wharton, who eventually wrote over 50 works, spent much of her childhood in Europe developing an appreciation for the arts. In 1885 she married a wealthy banker, Edward Robbins Wharton, and turned to writing--books on decorating, then novels. In 1906, Wharton moved to Paris where she was engaged in a passionate affair with Morton Fullerton. In 1913 she divorced her husband. By this time, Wharton had achieved fame and began spending time among a society of writers and intellectuals that included Henry James. THE AGE OF INNOCENCE, just one of her many classic works, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1920. In addition to her novels, Wharton produced poetry, travel books, and literary criticism.
From the Publisher
Annotation Edith Wharton's last novel is the story of a of spirited woman trapped by social conventions and expectations in a loveless, destructive marriage.
Editors Note Finally finished by writer Marion Mainwaring, Edith Wharton's timeless story is as riveting today as any written in her own time. Set in the 1870s, The Buccaneers is about five wealthy American girls whose money is too "new" to get them into society.
Annotation 2 Edith Wharton's last novel, unfinished when she died in 1937, was published in its incomplete state in 1938. The title refers to the bold actions of a group of four young American debutantes who seek to use their vast wealth to acquire aristocratic European husbands.
