Even More on “Downton Abbey,” This Time Adding Edith Wharton

This week I spent some time chatting with Pat Ryan of the New York Times who was assigned to write a nifty story for the New York Times about some sites in New York that were reminiscent of Edith Wharton. (The 150th anniversary of Wharton’s birth is January 24th.) Pat’s story is really charming and includes fabulous photos of American heiresses who married Englishmen — just like Lady Grantham! It also mentions To Marry an English Lord, the book I wrote with Gail MacColl about these heiresses. And the pictures are fabulous. Of course if you got here from the link in the story, you already know that!

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.
