WHARTON’s 150th BIRTHDAY


WHARTON’s 150th BIRTHDAY - This post is dedicated to Edith Wharton, who was recently honored on her 150th birthday. Topics this writer studied often centered around upper-class old New York society near the turn of the century.
She wrote numerous short stories, but most notably collected works titled, The Ghost Stories, featuring The Lady's Maid's Bell. Her best novels include:
1.    Ethan Frome (my favorite)
2.    The House of Mirth
3.    The Age of Innocence
