A brilliant and penetrating study of life in the upper social circles of New York...its people all fully and sharply characterized, its story managed with the most praiseworthy dexterity, and the whole seasoned with the acid of Mrs. Wharton's keen satire.
There are only three or four American novelists who can be thought of as "major" -- and Edith Wharton is one.
