9781444652697: The Touchstone

The Touchstone by Edith Wharton is a fascinating novel of the period and still an interesting read today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

About the Author:

Edith Wharton was born Edith Newbold Jones in 1862 in New York City, into a socially prominent family whose wealth came from real estate holdings. She was discouraged from an interest in writing by her mother, who forbid her reading contemporary literature. but in 1878, a family friend passed along some of her poems to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who championed them for publication. She went on to maintain an unusual degree of independence despite marrying Edward Wharton, whom she divorced 30 years later. In 1921, she became the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize (for her novel The Age of Innocence). Wharton died in France in 1937.

About the Author:

American novelist Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) is known for her finely crafted stories of New York mores, including The Age of Innocence. Salley Vickers is a writer, lecturer and psychologist and a regular speaker at literary conferences. Her novel Miss Garnet's Angel was hugely successful and she has recently followed this with the best-selling Instances of the Number Three.
