Happily Ever After: Celebrating Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
Our dear friend Susannah Fullerton has compiled a wonderful story of one of the world's favorite and most famous books to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. From what we know of Austen's first draft, to an exploration of the things that make the story so endearing (the heroine, the hero, her relative, the characters). A history of reactions to the novel by other writers and famous folks, and a thoroughly modern exploration of the various mash-ups, crazy gifts, television miniseries, movies, games, and sequels, all P&P-inspired. Celebrate the novel's travels from the trenches of WWI to Hollywood and in translation around the world. With a collection of book illustrations scattered throughout, some you're bound not to have seen. Please note this is the same book as our item#14396, but with a new jacket from a new publisher. Susannah heads the Australian branch of the Jane Ausen Society. Frances Lincoln Ltd., London. 2013, Hb, Dj. NEW. $22.00
