In Tales of Men and Ghosts” Edith Wharton spins ten tales with a certain thermometrical” quality. That is: the ability to send a cold shiver down one’s spine.” This is a collection of stories originally published in Scribner’s and Century magazines before 1910. The tales explore psychological, as well as moral or social themes, as when Andrew Culwin realizes to his horror that "The Eyes" that haunt him are his own. In "Afterward," when Ned Boyne leaves his new bride for the spectre of a former business partner he cheated out of his share of a fortune, Mary Boyne must confront the limits of the marital bliss.
