book jacket

 “A Backward Glance” is Edith Wharton’s autobiography beginning with her younger years and ending just before its publication in 1933.  This book is filled with wonderful descriptions of the life and times of one of America’s literary giants during the Guilded Age.  Follow Edith Wharton as she matures amidst the wealth of New York and European Society, rubbing shoulders with many famous personages of that time.
