Edith Wharton

I got this Edith Wharton anthology for Christmas. I am reading it this morning but who knows how far I will get. I don't think I've read her before, but I'm not sure. I feel like I read Age of Innocence, but I may have just seen the movie. It's good by the way.

Wish me luck! So far it reminds me of George Eliot.

Ethan Frome is (so far) a gothic story set in a small New England town. Not at all what I expected! Like Nathaniel Hawthorne meets Flannery O'Connor? Or maybe that only makes sense in my somewhat limited reference points. It's winter and mysterious. The narrator is a faceless, nameless voice, telling a story, making it a story about storytelling, similar to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I shall continue!
