I got a bit excited the other day when Greg Zimmerman tweeted about the US getting its own version of Downton Abbey from the show’s creator, Julian Fellowes. It will start in America’s Gilded Age (1880s), and feature the likes of the Mellons, Carnegies, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, etc. You can read the Atlantic article about it here.
Will you watch? I’m thrilled, I can’t wait! Have you read any good books about this era that we can read to get ourselves ready? Perhaps some Edith Wharton?
