Annotation: "The House of Mirth" -- Edith Wharton's sadly insightful tale of Lily Bart's descent from the stratosphere of New York society into a disheveled life of drugs and desperation -- may well be the author's most powerful accomplisment. Lily will haunt you, leaving you with great a sense of personal loss. . . .

Contributor Bio(s): Wharton, Edith: - "Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, short story writer, and designer. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930. Wharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive novels and short stories of social and psychological insight. She was well acquainted with many of her era's other literary and public figures, including Theodore Roosevelt."
