Jane Austen … in AMERICA?!

“Yet this writer who enjoyed only moderate success while she was alive has had a miraculous cultural afterlife. No other author, except perhaps Shakespeare, has been as adapted, appropriated and aped as Austen.”

This article is a few days old at this point, but, BUT, it’s worth a read given that our bestseller for the 1000th week in a row is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

We all know a Janespotter in our lives. Won’t you help them by reading an Austen classic/Genre-based mashup today?
