Description - The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton's satiric anatomy of American society in the first decade of the twentieth century both appalled and fascinated its first reviewers. The novel follows the career of Undine Spragg, recently arrived in New York from the midwest and determined to conquer high society. She pursues her schemes in a world of shifting values, where triumph is swiftly followed by disillusion.
