Edith Wharton and Friends in Vogue

Not only do we get an essay on Edith Wharton written by Colm Tóibín in the newest issue of Vogue, but we get an entire Wharton-inspired photo spread shot by Annie Leibovitz at The Mount. Including the above photo that recreates a picnic between Henry James, Morton Fullerton and Wharton.

What’s even better? Jonathan Safran Foer in a photo with Junot Díaz posing as Walter Van Rensselaer Berry:

  1. Nice to see Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Junot Díaz in the photos. Wharton is played by model Natalia Vodianova, I guess because Vogue doesn’t know any contemporary women writers?
