Free Audio Friday: The House of Mirth

The_House_of_Mirth

Elizabeth is starting up her Free Audio Friday posts again – to promote titles from her free LibriVox recordings, and to offer new recordings on this site. Today’s title is Elizabeth’s LibriVox recording of Edith Wharton’s classic 1905 novel of manners The House of Mirth. Listen for free here. The book is about 29-year-old socialite Lily Bart, who is “on the hunt for a rich husband” but drawn irresistibly toward Lawrence Selden, a man with little money but who represents the intellectual freedom to which Lily aspires. Wharton’s beautiful novel established her as a major voice in American fiction. Happy Friday, and happy listening!
