Praise & Reviews

“If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it… Sittenfeld makes an already irresistible story even more beguiling and charming.”

“Sittenfeld is an obvious choice to recreate Jane Austen’s comedy of manners. [She’s] is a master at dissecting social norms to reveal the truths of human nature underneath.”

“A delightful romp for not only Austen devotees but also lovers of romantic comedies and sly satire, as well… Bestselling Sittenfeld plus Jane Austen? What more could mainstream fiction readers ask for?”
Booklist (starred review)

“Sittenfeld adeptly updates and channels Austen’s narrative voice—the book is full of smart observations on gender and money…a clever retelling of an old-fashioned favorite.”
