First published in 1913, Edith Wharton'sThe Custom Of The Countryis scathing novel of ambition featuring one of the most ruthless heroines in literature.  Undine Spragg is as unscrupulous as she is magnetically beautiful.  Her rise to the top of New York's high society from the nouveau riche provides a provocative commentary on the upwardly mobile and the aspirations that eventually cause their ruin.  One of Wharton's most acclaimed works,The Custom Of The Countryis a stunning indictment of materialism and misplaced values that is as powerful today for its astute observations about greed and power as when it was written nearly a century ago.
