The Age of Innocence-

Among New York City's upper class of the 1870s, before the advent of electric lights, telephones or motor vehicles, there was a small cluster of aristocratic families that ruled New York's social life. To those at the apex of the social world one's occupation or abilities were secondary to heredity and family connections, and one's reputation and outward appearance was of foremost importance. At the center of the highest circles is Newland Archer, a lawyer set to enter into a socially safe marriage with the sheltered and beautiful May Welland -- a decision Archer is forced to re-consider after the appearance of Countess Ellen Olenska, May's exotic and beautiful cousin, recently returned from a lengthy stay in Europe.

House of Mirth-

One of the first novels of manners to emerge in American literature, and also one of Wharton's best-known works, The House of Mirth centers on Lily Bart, a New York socialite attempting to secure a husband and a place in affluent society.

The Custom of the Country-

Never has there been such an accurate and moving presentation of New York as it is by one who really knows.

The Reef-

Mrs. Wharton has produces one of her most adroit and scintillant dissections of the human relation. She has made of Anna Leath an extraordinary study of awakening impulses n a woman.

The Fruit of the Tree-

By the power of the narrative, the remarkable development of a situation and a problem new to fiction, and the absorbing analysis of its effect on the characters concerned, it has at once taken a place in the first rank of American novels.

The Glimpses of the Moon-

Something more than an entertaining novel to enchant the summer days: it is a human document. Not a detail is lacking in the mise-en-scene. And in a series of chapters which might be fairly called acts of the drama, is presented a vivid, graphic transcription of one phase of contemporary life. The entire ensemble is a perfect mosaic, each piece of which fits into the scheme, and of which the relative values are held with that fine touch which characterizes Edith Wharton.

The Touchstone-

A very unusual and brilliant short novel, in which a singular situation is worked out with that searching accuracy and psychological detail which characterized Mrs. Wharton's short stories.
