    (5)

    The mystery of how a wealthy New York socialite became a major American novelist is brilliantly explored in this fascinating critical biography, widely considered to be the most perceptive introduction to Edith Wharton's life and work.

    Charles Bland says: "Very useful contribution to Wharton biography"
    "Psychobabble Nonsense"

    What disappointed you about A Feast of Words?

    This book reads like the work of an articulate but gullible graduate student's first draft of a theses. It is filled with self-evident assumptions dressed up as deep analysis. Repeatedly the author makes statements as to what Wharton thought and why she acted that are based only on the author's imaginings based on convenient and popular reductions of psychological theory.


    What was most disappointing about Cynthia Griffin Wolff’s story?

    The lack of facts.

    This is the story of Bathsheba Everdene, who inherits her uncle's farm, then surprises the villagers of Weatherbury by deciding to run it herself rather than hire a manager. 3 men vie for the affections of this independent young woman.

    Bettina says: "Nathaniel Parker is PERFECT as narrator"
    "Outstanding Narrator"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Far From The Madding Crowd to be better than the print version?

    Nathaniel Parker's characters are stunning. Accents, toning, even breath sounds make Hardy's world so real as to seem to belong to the listener.
