Summary "The House of Mirth (1905), the bestseller that established Wharton's reputation, recounts the story of the beguiling Lily Bart, whose efforts to retain her class standing by marrying a man of sufficient means and status are her ultimate undoing."--BOOK JACKET. "The Custom of the Country (1913) is the saga of the ruthlessly grasping Undine Spragg, who cycles through husband after husband in a vain attempt at happiness; alas, whatever she can't have is what she most desires."--BOOK JACKET. "The Age of Innocence (1920), winner of the Pulitzer Prize, presents a masterly portrait of desire and betrayal in which the young lawyer Newland Archer must choose between duty and love."--BOOK JACKET.
