Welcome to Pain Month! For our one year anniversary (yeah, we made it a year) each host has picked a book of loathing. This week we are discussing Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton.
You can listen here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/4AK1fuzXFLcjPskNzGDCD4
To Drink Along:
Grab a bottle of claret. Edith Wharton HATED claret and champagne. Maybe some Cornichon (bougie pickles), sourdough bread, and aged cheddar cheese to amplify the cheese plate. Convince people that you invented interior decorating.
- All hail Sparknotes
- Thug Notes: Ethan Frome (the Ethan Shit orbit, OMG)
- PBS: Edith Wharton
- Edith Wharton: The Sense of Harmony
- Liam Neeson was in a movie version of this from 1993 but I didn’t want to put us through it so we didn’t watch it.
Our next book is The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
