Edith Wharton (1862-1937), the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize, vividly reflects on her public and private life in this memoir. It describes the sophisticated New York society in which Wharton spent her youth, and chronicles her travels throughout Europe and her literary success as an adult. Beautifully depicted are her friendships with many of the most celebrated artists and writers of her day, including her close friend Henry James (1843-1916).
