Romance Classic: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I love Jane Austen. She’s the grandmother of modern romance and her story, Pride and Prejudice, with the incredible Mr. Darcy has been an inspiration to writers ever since. It truly is a classic. In fact, one of the highlights of my career was being asked to write a re-imagining of that story called Pride and Prejudice: The Wild and Wanton Edition, opening the closed doors of Austen’s world and delivering more into the motivations and emotions of the characters. It releases Jan 2011 from Adam’s Media. ~ Michelle M. Pillow, author of Mountain’s Captive
Since its immediate success in 1813, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen called this brilliant work “her own darling child” and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennett, “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.” The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austen’s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.
