    (NYRB Classics series). It was in New York City that Edith Wharton's literary and cultural sensibility was formed. The regular rows of somber brownstones, the inexorable codes of behavior, the solid layers of bullion on which the elegant social structure stood - all played a crucial part in the awakening of Wharton's mind. Though she moved in 1911 to France, where she spent the rest of her life, New York continued to figure for her as a fixed point of reference - the North Star on the firmament of her imagination. This original collection shows the arc of Wharton's own response to the city that shaped her view of the world. Twenty stories. 452p.
