Description

“Edith Wharton was born in 1862 into an aristocratic New York family. Educated by the best governesses and tutors, Wharton profited from an exceptional education. She began her writing ‘career with short stories before moving to novels. Collected in ‘Ethan Frome and Selected Stories, are the best of both. In her 1911 novel ‘Ethan Frome’ a young engineer on assignment in a small New England town becomes fascinated by the deformed and troubled local Ethan Frome.

This fascination leads him on a quest to unravel Frome’s unique history while discovering a great deal about the society around him. In the short story ‘Afterward,’ a dirty business transaction comes back to haunt one family in this dynamic ghost story. The humorous short story ‘Xingu’ follows a group of posh pseudo-intellectuals who host literary luncheons when one day one of their favorite authors pays a visit. Also included are ‘The Pretext’ and ‘The Legend.’ Edith Wharton may be most recognized for her novels but it is in her short stories that her panache, spirit, and intellect come shining through with unavoidable delight.”
