… by Edith Wharton and it’s fantastic. Too bad it is a tragedy, so it must end tragically. But I so much hoped for Lily Bart to marry Lawrence Selden (she! proposed after a fifth of the novel, with no kiss exchanged yet – but a woman, of course, cannot propose, and so her question wasn’t a proposal), but now I fear that she is going to lose the little money she has through Gus Trenor’s speculations… sigh…

  1. The House of Mirth is astounding. One of my favorite of Wharton’s novels. I do hope you enjoy it—you must let us know!

  2. I’m glad you’re enjoying it. It’s difficult to keep quiet, but I must until you’re finished!

  3. Yes, please don’t say a word! Btw, I changed the equality post to ‘private’ status, until the issues is resolved. Director wasn’t in today (too bad, I was in the perfect mood).

  4. ha! that makes sense. I hope you’ll let us know how it all comes out. Don’t take any guff.
