About Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton, author of Xingu and The Vice of Reading, was a prolific writer. She wrote both fiction and nonfiction and loved to write about things that interested her. That's why you'll find essays, design books, books on houses and gardens, travel books, and a book on writing, as well as novels, novellas, and short stories. She wrote 38 novels and novellas, and well over 85 short stories. Although she wrote her first novel at the age of eleven, her mother's cold reception dampened her enthusiasm. In later years, many adored Wharton's novel Ethan Frome, but she won the Pulitzer Prize for The Age of Innocence. Even today, her novel The House of Mirth continues to draw readers.
