Madame De Treymes and Three Novellas

Madame de Treymes and Three Novellas - Edith Wharton, Susan Mary Alsop I think I might like Edith Wharton's short stories better than her novels. She gives me so much anxiety -- she does the most horrible things to her characters -- and the shortened format makes it much less agonizing to read.

These were four short novels.
Four stars for The Touchstone and Madame de Treymes and three stars for Sanctuary and The Bunner Sisters (though I'm tempted to add a half a star for the most inadvertently hilarious death bed confession ever).
