Would you consider the audio edition of The Custom of the Country to be better than the print version?
This narrator has extraordinary skill at cadence and differentiation between the large cast of characters. It was absolutely cinematic.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Custom of the Country?
Both the beginning and end are startling and are moments where the events in the tale seem to open into a wider critique that touches the here and now.
What about Lorna Raver???s performance did you like?
She beautifully performs all of the genders, ages and classes written without ever letting you notice that she is doing it. He pronunciation is flawless in French and English.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
In a world where too much is never enough, Undine Spragg is the hungriest of the hungry.
Any additional comments?
The book is enthralling. I had never read it, recently read a piece in the New Yorker about it, and had hoped it would be interesting. It was difficult to remove my i-pod, frankly.

Very good. Edith Wharton at her best. A great listen for a long journey. Excellent.
Edith Wharton's best novel in my opinion. Undine Spragg is an incredible invention. Infuriating at times but worth it.
