The House of Mirth on NPR

Thought you heard Wharton being discussed on NPR? You were right! Click here to read or listen to Mireille Guiliano on one of her favorite books, The House of Mirth. In this personal essay, as part of NPR's series "You Must Read This," she writes:

In my early 20s, I "met" author Edith Wharton in a literature class while I was living in Paris and attending the Sorbonne. Right away, I felt I had a friend.

You may know Mireille Guiliano from her hit book, French Women Don't Get Fat, or from her many other accomplishments (check out her web site here). Thank you, Mme. Guiliano, for this wonderful essay!
