Edith Wharton - THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY
A few months ago there was some hubbub over an article in The New Yorker that Johnathan Franzen wrote about Edith Wharton celebrating her 150th birthday. Whatever you may have thought about the article - one thing it did is make me want to go back and read her work. THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY is the least know of her major books but one could make an argument that it is the most fun. Perfect reading for a spring afternoon. Also, we here at Scaredy Kat highly recommend a visit to The Mount if you find yourself in western Massachusetts with some time to spare.
