The Age of Innocence [audio]

This audiobook, The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton’s 12th novel, published in 1920. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize. The story is set in upper-class New York City in the 1870s. The Age of Innocence centers on an upper-class couple’s impending marriage, and the introduction of a woman plagued by scandal whose presence threatens their happiness. Though the novel questions the assumptions and morals of 1870s’ New York society, it never devolves into an outright condemnation of the institution. The novel is lauded for its accurate portrayal of how the 19th-century East Coast American upper class lived.
