Novels: The House of Mirth / The Reef / The Custom of the Country / The Age of Innocence (Library of America)

Novels: The House of Mirth / The Reef / The Custom of the Country / The Age of Innocence (Library of America #30) - Edith Wharton, R.W.B. Lewis There is something about the way Wharton describes the very rich of late 1800s America, in The House of Mirth, that can only really be captured with the very delicate paper of this edition. Of the story, it is the imperfect natures of the characters that draws me in and the fact that, whilst they resolve some issues, they are still flawed in the end. It may not be as gritty as some novelists with the setting, but it feels as though the emotions are...it helps to remind me that the glittering world of money isn't an Austen-esque world.
