There’s a great article in the New York Times’ travel section about Edith Wharton’s Paris. I’ve written about Edith Wharton several times before (here and here), but mostly in regard to her house in Massachusetts, The Mount.The article details Mrs. Wharton’s life in Paris in the early years of the 20th century, before it was invaded by Americans looking for a cheap and exotic place to live and write.She carried on an affair while living there, but it ended unhappily and she continued living in France until her death. She is buried there and as the Times says, her grave at Versailles is unvisited and untended. Be sure and watch the accompanying slide show, where these images are from. It’s got some great information. And while you’re on the New York Times’ site, check out the 100 great hotels in Europe under $150.
