The mystery of how a wealthy New York socialite became a major American novelist is brilliantly explored in this definitive psychological interpretation of Edith Wharton's life and work. This edition includes two new chapters illuminating Wharton's times and creative process: one on Lily Bart and the lethal stereotypes of women on the nineteenth-century stage, and another on the way Wharton's own sensual awakening led from the frozen austerity of Ethan Frome to the lyricism and tempered happiness of Summer.
