She told The Week magazine about her six best books. One title on the list:
The Age of Innocence by Edith WhartonRead about another book on Brzezinski's list.

The Age of Innocence also appears on Frances Kiernan's five best list of books that helped her understand the ways of New York society and David Kamp's list of six books that are notable for their food prose, and is among Honor Blackman's 6 best books.
