Collected Short Stories by Edith Wharton

This anthology brings together a diverse collection of narratives that delve into the complexities of human nature, social mores, and the subtle intricacies of personal relationships during the turn of the 20th century. The stories, penned by a prominent figure in American literature, often explore the lives of the upper-class society and the constraints imposed by its rigid conventions. With keen psychological insight and a sharp eye for detail, the author weaves tales that reveal the underlying tensions and hypocrisies of the time, while also highlighting the struggles of individuals—particularly women—as they navigate the social landscape of their era.
