Remember to Tip Your Archivists

By posted at 11:14 am on June 2, 2017 1

Thanks to the work of archivists at The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, two scholars have unearthed a 1901 play by Edith Wharton called “The Shadow of a Doubt,” reports The Guardian. “After all this time, nobody thought there were long, full scale, completed, original, professional works by Wharton still out there that we didn’t know about. But evidently there are. In 2017, Edith Wharton continues to surprise.” Pair with this reflection on the role of New York City in Wharton’s novels.

    That IS really amazing! I loved The Age of Innocence and The House of Mirth, so I’m sure this will also be another Wharton delight. My only question is when will it be available at my local bookstore? 😊😊
