Reviews

"A remarkable feat. . . . Unquestionably authoritative, impressively exhaustive....Nobody has done Edith Wharton such careful justice as [Hermione] Lee." --Claire Messud, The New York Times Book Review

"Magnificent. . . . By far the most comprehensive study of [Wharton's] full, populous and robust life. . . . Wharton lived a spirited and passionate life, and Lee captures that passion." --Newsday

"Thorough and intelligent. . . . This meticulous, generous biography is likely to suffice for a long time." --Diane Johnson, The Washington Post Book World

"Richly detailed, carefully nuanced. . . . Edith Wharton is not only the best book on its subject, but one of the finest literary biographies to appear in recent years." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
