Description

A moving, wise and delightfully modern comedy of manners from the bestselling, Man Booker shortlisted author Karen Joy Fowler. Six people - five women and a man - meet once a month in California's Central Valley to discuss Jane Austen's novels. They are ordinary people, neither happy nor unhappy, but each of them is wounded in different ways, they are all mixed up about their lives and relationships. Over the six months they meet, marriages are tested, affairs begin, unsuitable arrangements become suitable - under the guiding eye of Jane Austen a couple of them even fall in love... 'If I could eat this novel, I would' Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones 'A thoroughly delightful comedy of contemporary manners' Entertainment Weekly 'We defy you not to fall head over heels for this lovely novel' Mail On Sunday
