What's the buzz about this book box?
"I think Undine must be a combination of narcissistic and sociopathic behaviors EW observed in a variety of different people and situations of the time."
"In Undine, EW created the perfect villain, the personification of all she loathed about society in NY during her day and age. It worked then. And it's working now."
"I sincerely hope EW took all of the loathsome behavior she witnessed in people of the time and smashed them all into one character. Heaven help if she actually knew a real-life Undine."
