EDITH WHARTON (1862-1937) was one of the most remarkable women of her time, and her immense commercial and critical success--most notably with her novel 'The Age of Innocense' (1920), which won a Pulitzer Prize. Her other novels, including 'The Fruit of the Tree,' remain fascinating portraits of an earlier time.
