    Set on a cruise ship sailing between Algiers and Venice, Wharton's novel satirizes the vulgarity and exposes the irresponsibility of the American nouveau riche. On board ship, Martyn Boyne, an unmarried gentleman in his 40s, befriends the seven unruly children of the much-married and remarried Wheaters.
