Used Book - Twilight Sleep (PB)

by Edith Wharton (Author)
Paperback, Used-Very Good


USD 5.95

Sex, drugs, work, money, infatuation with the occult and spiritual healing—these are the remarkably modern themes that animate Twilight Sleep.

The extended family of Mrs. Manford is determined to escape the pain, boredom, and emptiness of life through whatever form of "twilight sleep" they can devise or procure.

Though the characters and their actions may seem more in keeping with today's society, this is still a classic Wharton tale of the upper crust and its undoing—wittily, masterfully told.
