Claire McMillan talks Edith Wharton, summer reads & ‘The Necklace’

Claire McMillan, author of The Necklace, visited us last week and discussed:

  • Edith Wharton’s influence on her, as well as what it’s like to write in Wharton’s historic home, The Mount.
  • her summer reads, including Alissa Nutting’s Made for Love, Roxane Gay’s The Hunger, and Courtney Maum’s Touch.
  • the value of 1920s Cleveland of reading society magazines and travel diaries as research for her novel.
