239) Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937). Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, short story writer, and designer.
"Her relations gave rise to the phrase 'keeping up with the Joneses'; but that did nothing to help the aspirations of an un-pretty, unfashionably red-headed little girl who was born to be remarkable. Almost symbolically, Edith's red hair remained defiantly unfaded until her dying day."
