Edith Wharton's Erotica is No Joke

The Rumpus covered this juicy tidedithwharton.jpgbit a couple of weeks ago, and generously included some quotations. Perhaps for those who found 50 Shades, riddled as it is with its grammatical errors--or so I'm told--a bit underwhelming, Wharton's stint in erotica will prove more fascinating.
