This volume brings together her best-loved novels, all set in New York.The House of Mirthis the story of Lily Bart, who needs a rich husband but refuses to marry without both love and money.The Custom of the Countryfollows the marriages and affairs of Undine Spragg, who is as vain, spoiled, and selfish as she is irresistibly fascinating.
