A sublime comedy of contemporary manners, this is the novel Jane Austen might well have written had she lived in 21st century California.

Six Californians join to discuss Jane Austen's novels. Over the six months they meet, marriages are tested, affairs begin, unsuitable arrangements become suitable, and love happens. With her finely sighted eye for the frailties of human behavior and her finely tuned ear for the absurdities of social intercourse, Fowler has never been wittier nor her characters more appealing. The result is a delicious dissection of modern relationships.

Dedicated Austenites will delight in unearthing the echoes of Austen that run through the novel, but most readers will simply enjoy the vision and voice that, despite two centuries of separation, unite two great writers of brilliant social comedy.

    " This book was ok, nothing special. I didn't hate it, but I certainly didn't love it either. Maybe at some point I'll get around to watching the movie. Maybe at some point I'll get around to actually reading some Jane Austen! I've started a few a couple of times, but never finished any of them. "

    " Delightful book. Unlike many of the Jane Austen-inspired books that are being written lately, this one was actually GOOD. Well-written with complex characters. Humorous. "

    " I really enjoyed this, I'm not sure what stopped me giving it full marks but maybe the fact that I read it over a period of time with breaks, a full marks novel usually proves fairly unputdownable. "

    " Nice little read. I wonder if the movie is any good? I enjoyed reading this one. "
