Edith Wharton in Paris

In this building lived from 1910 to 1920

Edith Wharton

American novelist

1862-1937

She was the first novelist from the United States who emigrated to France, out of love for this country and its culture.

Close to Henry James, the oeuvre of Edith Wharton showed the high society from which she originated tenderly and bitingly at the same time.
