I published essays on Austen for the bicentenary
What would Jane Austen have made of all of this? We're all just blindly guessing! But I can tell you exactly what I made of it. It was incredible, moving, and far more fun than mournful, To my mind, that's just as it should be.
Is It right for your book club?
Yes, Definitely! I'd love to hear from you if you're considering it.
This book Works best in Clubs Familiar with Austen's fiction OR Its film adaptations. (You could Read or watch Pride and Prejudice and then Choose this book.)
