Edith Wharton is one of America’s most respected authors. Her classic turn-of-the-century novels deal with the differences in society’s expectations of men’s and women’s behaviour and tend to end tragically. However, in this story, Wharton focuses comic attention on a woman who has had three husbands – all still living – and describes what happens when they re-enter her new family’s life (5,290 words).
