Happy Birthday Dear Edith

Today is Edith Wharton’s 150 birthday. The NY Times put together a stunning slide show of the life and times of Ms. Wharton (slide 7 of 10 is Grace Church, where I attended while living in NYC). She was a fabulous fiction writer, letter writer, and the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for her book The Age of Innocence. Here is the trailer for the film–if only Edith were here to critique it.
