Suzanne Vega

A book I never tire of reading. Undine Spragg is such a modern, greedy girl, and yet we love her as she works her way through her marriages, acquiring and desiring ever more. I enjoy reading about her dresses, her addresses and all the social mores of the day. Delicious.

Yes, I love “House of Mirth,” but the character of Undine Spragg may be Wharton’s greatest creation, a nouveau riche all-American girl for the new (20th) century.
