Product Overview

Wharton''s glittering satire of the newly affluent in Old New York
Considered by many to be her masterpiece, Edith Wharton''s second full-length work is a scathing yet personal examination of the exploits and follies of the modern upper class. As she unfolds the story of Undine Spragg, from New York to Europe, Wharton affords us a detailed glimpse of what might be called the interior d?cor of this America and its nouveau riche fringes. Through a heroine who is as vain, spoiled, and selfish as she is irresistibly fascinating, and through a most intricate and satisfying plot that follows Undine''s marriages and affairs, she conveys a vision of social behavior that is both supremely informed and supremely disenchanted. BACKCOVER: ?As long as men and women seek to use each other?and to use each other badly?Edith Wharton can be counted upon to provide the ideal commentary.?
?Anita Brookner
