Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 194 x 131 mm. Brand New Book. Set against the frozen waste of a harsh New England winter, Edith Wharton s Ethan Frome is a tale of despair, forbidden emotions, and sexual tensions, published with an introduction and notes by Elizabeth Ammons in Penguin Classics . Ethan Frome works his unproductive farm and struggles to maintain a bearable existence with his difficult, suspicious, and hypochondriac wife, Zeenie. But when Zeenie s vivacious cousin enters their household as a hired girl , Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she comes to represent. In one of American fiction s finest and most intense narratives, Edith Wharton moves this ill-starred trio toward their tragic destinies. Different in both tone and theme from Wharton s other works, Ethan Frome has become perhaps her most enduring and most widely read novel. Edith Wharton (1862-1937), born Edith Newbold Jones, was a member of a distinguished New York family said to be the basis for the idiom keeping up with the Joneses . During her life she published more than forty volumes, including novels, stories, verse, essays, travel books and memoirs; for years she published poetry and short stories in magazines, but the book that made Wharton famous was The House of Mirth (1905), which established her both as a writer of distinction and popular appeal. In 1920, Wharton became the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for literature with her novel The Age of Innocence . If you enjoyed Ethan Frome , you might like Nathaniel Hawthorne s The Scarlet Letter , also available in Penguin Classics . Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780142437803
