Age of Desire Giveaway
Now in paperback, a sparkling glimpse into the life of Edith Wharton and the scandalous love affair that threatened her closest friendship, THE AGE OF DESIRE: A Novel (Penguin; On-sale: 5/28/13; $16.00; 978-0-14-312328-6), by Jennie Fields, brings to life one of literature’s most beloved writers, whose own story was as complex and nuanced as that of any of the heroines she created.
Extraordinary coincidences, such as the sudden discovery of more than 100 letters from Edith to Anna, Edith’s governess turned literary secretary and confessor, make Jennie Fields’ own story of writing this novel remarkable. In THE AGE OF DESIRE, Fields seamlessly weaves these letters and other diary entries throughout a narrative that alternates between the points of view of both women, taking the reader on a vivid journey through Wharton’s exhilarating world.
