Initially serialized in the Pictorial Review in 1920, The Age of Innocence is a stylistic and intimate portrayal of upper class life in New York City during the Gilded Age.

Lawyer and socialite Newland Archer is about to enter a loveless marriage with a well-to-do bride, when her cousin, the exotic Ellen Olenska, enters the picture. Olenska is stuck in a bad marriage with a Polish count, and Archer finds himself in the awkward position of persuading her to save her family's reputation by staying with her husband, even though Archer himself has fallen in love with her.

Combining a romantic tragedy with artful descriptions of aristocratic life in New York City, Edith Wharton's twelfth novel is now available as an elegantly designed clothbound edition with an elastic closure and a new introduction.

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
