9781331253402: Tales of Men and Ghosts (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Tales of Men and Ghosts

Hubert Granice, pacing the length of his pleasant lamp-lit library, paused to compare his watch with the clock on the chimney-piece.

Three minutes to eight.

In exactly three minutes Mr. Peter Ascham, of the eminent legal firm ad Ascham and Pettilow, would have his punctual hand on the door-bell of the flat.

It was confirmed that to reflect that Ascham was so punctual - the suspense was beginning to make his host nervous. And the sound of the door-bell would be the beginning of the end-after that there'd be no going back, by God - no going back!

Granice resumed his pacing. Each time he reached the end of the room opposite the door he caught his reflection in the Florentine mirror above the fine old crédence he had picked up at Dijon - saw himself spare, quick-moving, carefully brushrdand dressed, but furrowed, gray abut the temples, with a stoop which he corrected by a spasmodic straightening of the shoulders whenever a glass confronted him: a tires middle-aged man, baffled, beaten, worn out.

About the Author :

Edith Wharton (1862-1937), American novelist and short-story writer, was born in New York City. Strongly influenced by Henry James, she is best known for her subtle and su-perbly crafted studies of the tragedies and ironies in the lives of members of middle-class and artistocratic New York soci-ety in the the nineteenth century. She was educated in New York and Europe, and married Edward Wharton, a Boston banker, in 1885. When her husband became mentally ill, she cared for him until 1913, when she settled permanently in France and divorced him. Among her best and most characteristic works are The House of Mirth (1905) and The Age of Innocence (1920), for which she received a Pultizer prize.
