Synopsis

With an Edith Wharton revival well under way, Fast and Loose, a romantic first novel begun when Wharton was fourteen and The Buccaneers, left unfinished when she died at seventy-five, are now back in print and available for the first time in one edition. The rich parallels seen when the two novels are presented together, along with Viola Hopkins Winner's critical Introduction, make this volume far greated than the sum of its parts.
