I loved it! A true anti-heroine, narcissistic, caring only about fashion, beauty, and her own selfish needs. Wharton paints a picture of high society women--and doesn't like what she sees.

I love anything by Edith Wharton (author of Ethan Frome and the Age of Innocence). Great for any lover of classics or romances.
