This edition contains two short stories by the American author Edith Wharton. The first is on marriage and falling in and out of love. And while I quite liked the concept, I liked the second story a bit better. It’s about an old woman who’s main pleasure in life is watching the world pass by from her window. She goes to great length to keep that view safe.
Intriguing short stories, although I am not entirely convinced of the writing, which I found rather bleak.
