On This Day

Born on this day was, Edith Wharton.

I decided to read Ethan Frome over Christmas a few years ago because it’s small & didn’t take up much room in the luggage. Boy did I get a surprise. This is one of the saddest books I’ve ever read. The harsh brutality that is unremittingly in your face never lets you out of its grasp. I recommend it to everyone who wants a good weep and who wants to see their life isn’t so bad.
