Description
The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for literature, Edith Wharton stands among the finest writers of early 20th-century America. In The Custom of the Country, Wharton' s scathing social commentary is on full display through the beautiful and manipulative Undine Spragg. When Undine convinces her nouveau riche parents to move to New York, she quickly injects herself into high society. But even a well-to-do husband isn' t enough for Undine, whose overwhelming lust for wealth proves to be her undoing.

Description
Beautiful, calculating Undine Spragg wants more than anything to be stylish. Never satisfied, she is constantly planning her next social accomplishment. In her struggle, she encounters Ralph Marvell, a gentleman from the upper class, who falls helplessly in love with her. But the restless Undine is concerned only for her own well-being, and does not understand the feelings of those who surround her.
