Spirited Lily Bart possesses beauty, honor and debts galore.

A timeless, tragic heroine of American Literature, Lily Bart journeys up and down the social ladder trying to maintain her nobility and moral nature amidst the greed and games and cruelty of upper class New York society. A unique window into the ruthless, moneyed world of New York that Edith Wharton knew and chronicled so well, the novel depicts a turn-of-the-century New York not all that different from today’s.
