Wednesday Shorts: Expiation

August 26 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

$10

This story, a satire about authorship, appeared in Hearst’s International-Cosmopolitan magazine in December 1903, two years before the publication of The House of Mirth, as Margaret Drabble notes, so Wharton “had not yet enjoyed or endured the experience of finding herself a famous author, although the story shows that she had armed herself against it.” This time out, the novel written by the lead character of Wharton’s story is preparing herself eagerly and nervously for the possibility that the story will be a “succès de scandale.” What happens instead is the stuff of comedy.
