Description

Highly acclaimed at its publication in 1913, The Custom of the Country is a cutting commentary on America' s nouveaux riches, their upward-yearning aspirations and their eventual downfalls. Through her heroine, the beautiful and ruthless Undine Spragg, a spoiled heiress who looks to her next materialistic triumph as her latest conquest throws himself at her feet, Edith Wharton presents a startling, satiric vision of social behavior in all its greedy glory. As Undine moves from America' s heartland to Manhattan, and then to Paris, Wharton' s critical eye leaves no social class unscathed.
