The Descent of Man and Other Stories
'The Descent of Man and Other Stories ' Summary
This collection of ten stories, first published in 1904, shows Edith Wharton dissecting some of the customs, habits and vagaries of courtship and marriage, particularly as practiced in the upper reaches of New York society at the turn of the twentieth century.

Wharton handles the questions with her usual gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) irony and curiosity about human behavior.
