Waterstones Says

Although better known for her realist classics The Age of Innocence and Ethan Frome, Edith Wharton was also a master of the ghost story. The spooky and sinister tales collected in this exquisitely designed edition are amongst the classics of the genre, and still retain their power to terrify and unnerve.

With a new introduction by Kelly Link

In these powerful and elegant tales, Edith Wharton evokes moods of disquiet and darkness within her own era. In icy new England a fearsome double foreshadows the fate of a rich young man; a married farmer is bewitched by a dead girl; a ghostly bell saves a woman's reputation. Brittany conjures ancient cruelties, Dorset witnesses a retrospective haunting and a New York club cushions an elderly aesthete as he tells of the ghastly eyes haunting his nights.

Stories include: The Lady's Maid's Bell; The Eyes; Afterward; Kerfol; The Triumph of Night: Miss Mary Pask; Bewitched; Mr Jones; Pomegranate Seed; The Looking Glass; All Souls'

Also includes an Introduction and Autobiographical Postscript by the author.
