Too much Edith Wharton -- Never

I am flabbergasted. I have been reading a Wharton book in bed titled " A Son at the Front". It is so moving and about my favorite war (in terms of literature).

While in St Barts a couple of weeks back I bought a book of short stories by Wharton. She is so darn relevant that it shocks me. I wanted to grab the person next to me on the plane and read to her/him. How cool was she?????? It's my downstairs and in the car book.

The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in the Berkshires has been suffering from -- what do I know --bad financial management and a not-so-good economy. I hope they make it. She is a literary and decorative inspiration. I suppose I am a person of other eras.
