Riassunto: Edith Wharton (1862-1937), the grande dame of American literature, was also a subtle and spirited critic of its society. Twenty years earlier, Kate Clephane had exiled herself from husband, child and the rigidity of New York society because of her guilty elopement. Now, living quietly on the Rivera, she is overjoyed to be summoned home by her daughter, Anne. But back in the charmed circle, she finds post-war New York, though changed in many ways, still locked into petty and snobbish constrictions. This touching study of complex issues shows how Kate's joy in being with Anne is soon threatened by the reappearance of the only man Kate had truly loved.
L'autore: Edith Wharton was born in 1862. She won the Pulitzer Prize for The Age of Innocence in 1920, and was the first woman to receive a Doctorate of Letters from Yale University. In 1930 she became a member of the American Academy of Arts and letters. She died in France at the age of 75.
