Edith Wharton Bewertungen

"A superb biography" -- Colm Toibin Irish Times "Adding impressive depth and nuance to the received portrait of Wharton, Lee's biography excels in its discussions of her writing" -- Peter Kemp The Sunday Times "Painstaking and elegant... One of this book's great pleasures is Lee's discussion of Wharton's work" -- Kasia Boddy Daily Telegraph "A feat of exhaustive research...finely tuned to Wharton's creative achievement. This is a glorious biography" -- Mark Bostridge Independent on Sunday "[A] majestically weighty autobiography as meticulous, exhaustive and exhausting in scope and scale as its subject" -- Hilary Spurling Observer
