The classic satire of New York society and the American Dream through the misadventures of an insatiable young striverwith an introduction by Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror Ambitious and wholeheartedly materialistic, Undine Spragg is a beautiful heiress who sees men as a means to an end. New York millionaires and French aristocrats fall at her feet, but each conquest is merely a stepping-stone in Undine's quest for power and positionand in her elusive search for happiness. A biting satire from one of America's greatest writers, The Custom of the Country features an antiheroine as compelling and driven as Scarlett O'Hara, a sharp-eyed critique of the marriage market and its objectification of women, and a knowing send-up of Gilded Age snobbery. The Modern Library Torchbearers series features women who wrote on their own terms, with boldness, creativity, and a spirit of resistance: AMERICAN INDIAN STORIES *;THE AWAKENING *; THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY *;THE HEADS OF CERBERUS *; LADY AUDLEY'S SECRET *;LOVE, ANGER, MADNESS *;PASSING *;THE TRANSFORMATION OF PHILIP JETTAN *;VILLETTE
