I hadn’t read Wharton in a long while and had forgotten how effortlessly elegant and immensely readable her writing is. This novel is about the beautiful, witty and still unmarried Lily Bart. Although from a good family, she is poor and needs to find a husband to support her. Her precarious footing in New York society makes for an interesting tale set at the very beginning of the 1900’s.
