Drawing on unpublished letters and archival materials in Europe and the United States, The End of the Ago of Innocence documents Wharton's activities as fund-raiser, philanthropist, propagandist, and political activist during the Great War. A fascinating account of a little-understood period of Wharton's life. Shari Benstock, author of No Gifts from Chance: A Biography of Edith Wharton
