Tales of Men and Ghosts Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Tales of Men and Ghosts
By Edith Wharton
Narrated by John Burlinson, Sara Sheckells, Leanne Yau and Aisling Whitfield Gray
This collection of 10 classic tales is very representative of Wharton's approach to story-telling - in the narrative, the venue becomes a character almost as much as do the people. Situations are presented in an elegantly understated way, and the overall effect is disturbing rather than blatantly horrific.

This collection of short stories was quite compelling and Wharton is absolutely full of wit. I do confess that some of these dragged on and were overly wordy, something not uncommon for books of this era, but it is in these verbose elaborations that you find much of the gold of her writing.
I would recommend it to anyone as a good, casual read
