A young lawyer endures a moral struggle between passion and social conscience in Old New York. Edith Wharton's elegant portrait of desire and betrayal earned her the first Pulitzer Prize for literature ever awarded to a woman.

The New York Times Book Review - William Lyon Phelps

Here is a novel whose basis is a story. It begins on a night at the opera. The characters are introduced naturally—every action and every conversation advance the plot. The style is a thing of beauty from first page to last.... The appearance of a book such as The Age of Innocence is a matter for public rejoicing. It is one of the best novels of the twentieth century and looks like a permanent addition to literature.
