Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton was born on 24 January, 1862 in New York and died in France on 11 August, 1937. She won the Pulitzer Prize for The Age of Innocence in 1920 and was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930.

Many of her stories were set among New York’s high society at the turn of the century. She did not go to school but was a huge social success after her parents pushed her into attending elite gatherings in an attempt to get over her crippling shyness.
