I think I'll have to read Ethan Frome again, now that I'm more of a realist than I was in high school. In the meantime, I ordered Glimpes of the Moon of paperback swap so I hope to read that shortly.
Right now I'm reading The Christ Commission. Seemed fitting for Christmastime I guess. It's about a mystery author who tries to prove that Jesus' death & resurrection were a hoax.

In case you missed my comment: I LOVED Ethan Frome. That's just me. Anything depressing, sad, and unhappy tends to be my favorite. It's fairly typical Edith Wharton, except it doesn't have hardly any social commentary at all. Most of her other novels I've read (and no I haven't read them all--I space them out to savor them longer) focus on the social structures as one of their main themes. If you want the one and only Edith Wharton I've read with a fairly happy ending, read The Glimpses of the Moon.
