Product Description

An enormously entertaining novel, involving a novella, a fresh approach to the life and work of Edith Wharton, and the revelation of a secret love affair. Hugely acclaimed during her lifetime, writer Edith Wharton is back - with the most extraordinary opportunity. Now, in the age of the internet, she's at the centre of a modern-day mystery about words from the past. Summoned to a room in the afterlife, Edith finds the manuscript of a modern novella inspired by her life. An accompanying letter from her one-time editor advises Edith to consider carefully whether to destroy the novella or allow its publication. Is this a chance to correct her image of haughtiness and privilege, and to reignite interest in her writing? Edith begins reading the novella - a cautionary story of online fame - to her astonished companions. But as she gradually remembers the details of her life, she becomes fearful about what the novella might reveal and is haunted by the words- The letters survive, and everything survives. 'Philippa Swan's is an original voice that is articulate, humorous and disarmingly refreshing.' - NZ Books
