American author best known for her novels about the upper-class society into which she was born. This remains what some consider her finest work and was one of the author's personal favorites. Best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning Age of Innocence (1920) and her long tale Ethan Frome (1911) this work was praised for its realism and candor in depicting a young woman's sexual awakening. Eighteen year old, proud and independent Charity Royall is portrayed as a thoroughly contemporary woman.

Though Summer is not out of print, the September film release of Martin Scorsese's production of Wharton's The Age of Innocence is bound to have caused a renewed interest in all her books. Bantam's edition is the least expensive offering of this title currently on the market.
