Edith Wharton, “Twilight Sleep”


A classic evisceration of upper-class, urban America, with the style that only Edith Wharton can bring to the task


Pauline Manford is desperate to fill her time and her life—the wife of a successful lawyer, she wants for nothing but this fulfillment. Using increasingly outlandish means of attaining it, she finally finds her way to a dubious psychoanalyst, and an equally questionable guru. Can Pauline find satisfaction, or will the banality of her life keep her forever unfulfilled?


In 1921, Edith Wharton (1862-1937) became the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize, earning the award for The Age of Innocence. Wharton drew upon her insider’s knowledge of the upper-class New York “aristocracy” to realistically portray the lives and morals of the Gilded Age.
