Massive new Edith Wharton biography released

Can't remember how long ago I read that Hermione Lee, perhaps best known for her brilliant biography of Virginia Woolf, was at work on an exhaustive look at Edith Wharton.

At 880 pages, Edith Wharton was favorably reviewed in yesterday's New York Times Sunday Book Review. Probably wouldn't matter to me if it were panned. I'm a HUGE fan of R.W.B Lewis' 1975 Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of her, but will soak up anything about my favorite author of all time.

I can't concentrate on work until I first dash off to Barnes & Noble.

UPDATE: I purchased the book yesterday. At three pounds, it is definitely NOT a traveling book.
