Widely regarded as one of Edith Wharton's greatest achievements, The Age of Innocence is not only subtly satirical, but also a sometimes dark and disturbing comedy of manners in its exploration of the 'eternal triangle' of love.

Set against the backdrop of upper-class New York society during the 1870s, the author's combination of powerful prose combined with a thoroughly researched and meticulous evocation of the manners and style of the period, has delighted readers since the novel's first publication in 1920.

In 1921 The Age of Innocence achieved a double distinction - it won the Pulitzer Prize and it was the first time this prestigious award had been won by a woman author.

“An excellent book”

This was my first introduction to Edith Walton's writing. She described the settings (especially dinner settings and food) in such clear detail that I could visualise them. I learned much about this age and... More

“just so good!”

Would it be wrong to say that Edith Wharton's writing is like Jane Austen updated? It is for me, anyway.
If you've ever read the Luxe, it's like that, but thirty years in the past, and much more... More
