"As Wharton tells [the] story, the sharp irony of both her prose and her characters
bleeds into pools of true feeling."Kirkus Reviews

"There are only three or four American novelists who can be thought of as 'major'and Edith
Wharton is one."Gore Vidal

Set in the 1920s, The Glimpses of the Moon details the romantic misadventures
of Nick Lansing and Susy Branch, a couple with the right connections but not much in the way of funds.
They devise a shrewd bargain: they'll marry and spend a year or so sponging off their wealthy friends,
honeymooning in their mansions and villas.

As Susy explains, "We should really, in a way, help more than we should hamper each other. We both
know the ropes so well; what one of us didn't see the other mightin the way of opportunities, I mean.
And then we should be a novelty as married people. We're both rather unusually popularwhy not be
frank?and it's such a blessing for dinner-givers to be able to count on a couple of whom neither one
is a blank."

The other part of the plan is that if either one of them meets someone who can advance them socially,
they're each free to dissolve the marriage. How their plan unfolds is a comedy of Eros that will charm
all fans of Wharton's work.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us can’t do that as much as we’d like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It’s a common problem and it’s the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
