About this title

Synopsis:

EDITH WHARTON (1862-1937) was one of the most remarkable women of her time, experiencing immense commercial and critical success--most notably with her novel "The Age of Innocense" (1920), which won a Pulitzer Prize. Her other novels, including "The Fruit of the Tree," remain fascinating portraits of an earlier time.

About the Author:

Edith Wharton (1862-1937), American novelist and short-story writer, was born in New York City. Strongly influenced by Henry James, she is best known for her subtle and su-perbly crafted studies of the tragedies and ironies in the lives of members of middle-class and artistocratic New York soci-ety in the the nineteenth century. She was educated in New York and Europe, and married Edward Wharton, a Boston banker, in 1885. When her husband became mentally ill, she cared for him until 1913, when she settled permanently in France and divorced him. Among her best and most characteristic works are The House of Mirth (1905) and The Age of Innocence (1920), for which she received a Pultizer prize.
