Product Description

About the Author

Edith Newbold Jones (Edith Wharton) (1862-1937) was born in New York City during the American Civil War. She enjoyed a diverse and very successful career as interior and garden designer, short story writer and award-winning novelist. It was The House of Mirth, published in 1905, that made Wharton famous, and in 1921 she became the first woman to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Her great novella Ethan Frome is also published in the Penguin English Library.

I love all of Edith Wharton's books and would recommend House of Mirth. She writes so brilliantly, in fact I have reread this a few times and still enjoyed it. Wish there were more to read.

A Sad, Funny, Compelling and Still Relevant Story 22 Jun. 2014
By Belva in LA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Published in 1905, Ms. Wharton's novel is a heart breaking portrait of Lilly Bart, a beautiful young woman caught in an intricate web of society- was thinking how that society would revel in twitter and Instagram- and in her own flaws. You will root for Lilly, lose patience with her, sympathize with her and ultimately..well no spoilers.

Incisive and compelling 11 Aug. 2013
By Upbeat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't know how I missed "House of Mirth" first time around - but very much appreciate it, in my sixties. Concerns manners, class, and the plight of the unmarried, un-moneyed young women of certain social rank at the time. Seems a trivial tenet at first, but Edith Wharton is skilled at plot and character, as well as the "make-nice" conversations we still have, which are intended to accomplish the unspoken. Anyone who enjoyed her short stories ("Roman Fever," for example) will flip over this one!
