Edith Wharton was not only a great lady of American letters but also a highly talented woman who chose a career in literature in a period when serious writing was considered "too inky for ladies" and when only a passing acquaintance with the arts was deemed necessary. As she was later to comment, she was always thought too fashionable to be intelligent and too intelligent to be fashionable. This pictorial biography helps explain and recapture the ambiance of that bygone era, highlighting the life of an exceptional woman and novelist in this important period. Includes the intricate connection between Wharton's character Vance Weston and Thomas Wolfe, with a full-page photo of Wolfe and a description of Wolfe's Weston family.
