In this novel of manners, Lily Bart's life is changed forever when she rejects a millionaire's marriage proposal in favor of Lawrence Selden, the man she loves. After Lily is suspiciously gifted a large sum of money and Selden flees, she begins a downward spiral through New York City's social classes. THE HOUSE OF MIRTH is at once a sharp critique of New York society life and a classic tragedy.
