Format: Paperback
I found this book to be unlike the other works I had read by Edith Wharton. While her books "The Age of Innocence," "The House of Mirth" and "The Children" focused on the intricacies of upper-class society, "Hudson River Bracketed" is more about the creative personality. Young Vance Weston comes to New York State from a small town in the midwest. Untutored, he has a strong desire to write, and he makes his way in the New York literary world. He forms a strong friendship with a wealthy and brilliant women, Halo Tarrant. This book occasionally felt a bit like a pot-boiler, but it did hold my attention, particularly due to the way that Vance was in many ways a difficult person, yet undeniably a talented writer. There is a sequel (which I have not read) called "The Gods Arrive"
