Whether you've read Jane Austen once or read her yearly, or if you simply yearn to be Elizabeth or Mr. Darcy, this new Bedside Companion will make a perfect match. Janeite and newcomer alike will revel in the entertaining capsules of each of Austen's beloved novels, along with information on such important subjects as white soup, carriages, what happened at the ha-ha, and, of course, all those characters we love to hate. In the spirit of Austen, maps, puzzles and quizzes are provided-including the one and only Jane Austen Aptitude Test. The reader is taken on location to Steventon, her childhood home, to Bath, the city she was happy to leave, and elsewhere. Included is an interview Karen J. Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club, as well as all the movies made of Austen's stories, from Hollywood to Bollywood. An Austentatious work, indeed!
