Old New York (Esprios Classics) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Old New York (1924) is a collection of four novellas by Edith Wharton, revolving around upper-class New York City society in the 1840s, 1850s, 1860s, and 1870s.

The novellas are not directly interconnected, though certain fictional characters appear in more than one story.

The New York of these stories is the same as the New York of The Age of Innocence (1920), from which several fictional characters have spilled over into these stories.

The observation of the manners and morals of 19th century New York upper-class society is directly reminiscent of The Age of Innocence, but these novellas are shaped more as character studies than as a full-blown novel.
