Wharton's superb satirical novel of the Jazz Age--originally published in 1927. Taking her title from the sleep induced through medication to ease the pain during childbirth, Edith Wharton sketches a portrait of a society eager to escape the pain of everyday life through drugs and alcohol, secret sexual alliances, immersion in work, and the pursuit and capricious squandering of money.
