Edith Wharton- Signed, First edition, second printing

£25.00

Product description

Edith Wharton- Signed by the author Hermione Lee
This is the first biography of Edith Wharton by a British woman writer which challenges the accepted view, showing Wharton's lifelong ties to Europe and displaying her as a tough, erotically brave, startlingly modern young woman. This Edith Wharton is not the genteel, nostalgic chronicler of a vanished age but a fiercely modern author, writing of sex, love, money and war.
This masterly biography delves into every aspect of Wharton's extraordinary life-story. It shifts the emphasis towards Europe and places her more clearly than ever before in her social context and her history. In particular, it shows in fascinating detail how she worked and what lies at the heart of her magnificent and subtle books.
This signed copy is in immaculate condition throughout. The page edge and inner pages are faded but clean and the book looks to be unread. There are numerous black-and white photographs illustrating Wharton's life.
