Hm. I seem to be rather out of touch with what's been read here. Was The Secret Agent also 2011? I wouldn't have mentioned it if I'd known. So my first suggestion stands as The Custom of the Country.
Wharton is one of the authors of whom I've read the most books. I started with Ethan Frome and enjoyed it. The Age of Innocence is my favorite. We read that here, but it must have been the year before you, Sterling, joined us. I've also read The House of Mirth, Summer, A Backward Glance, Writing Fiction, A Motor Flight through France, and I've read The Custom of the Country before. I believe Harold Bloom calls TCotC her best work.
