Jane Austen Over and Over and Over

Lord David Cecil
"Not much about Jane Austen's personality can be gleaned from her works. It is from her letters, from the evidence of the friends and relations, and above all from a knowledge of the kind of life led and ideas held by the society she was born into, that we are to know her."
Pamela Aidan

Taking the reader into the world of one of Jane Austen's most famous characters, Fitzwilliam D'arcy, Pamela Aidan begins her tale by introducing her readers to Darcy during his first visit to Herfordshire.

Shannon Hale
For every woman who's read "Pride and Prejudice" and sighed for Mr. Darcy...
Helen Fielding

Laurie Viera Rigler
Talk about an out-of-body experience. One moment Courtney Stone is a modern-day L.A. career woman lamenting a lost love; the next she is Jane Mansfield, a well-to-do, willowy ...lady in nineteenth-century England. (from BookList)
Teddy Bader

Set in the years 1805-1815, Desire and Duty tells the romantic adventures of Mr Darcy's beautiful, shy, devout younger sister, Georgiana.

Jane Austen
"EMMA WOODHOUSE, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her."

What follows in Austen's classic distresses and vexes Emma very much indeed--and in such a funny way--making her one of the author's most memorable and beloved characters.

Abagail Reynolds
Imagines an alternative version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice... exploring the roads not taken.
Stephanie Barron
In a far-fetched but lighthearted ruse, Barron claims in the preface that she has found a number of manuscripts authored by Jane Austen detailing her detective adventures.
Paula Marantz Cohen

A collection of correspondence between an eighteen-year-old student with green spiky hair and her aunt Fay, in which they discuss the merits of reading Jane Austen.
Emma Campbell Webster
Bringing together Jane Austens most beloved characters and storylines, Webster takes a clever, playful, interactive, and highly entertaining approach to the novels in which the reader decides the outcome.
Sally Smith O'Rourke
O'Rourke alternates between the past and the present in this fascinating novel that pays tribute to Jane Austen's enduring ideals of romantic love. (from BookList)

Emily Albright (is) a New York bookstore manager, who half-seriously blames Jane Austen's Fitzwilliam Darcy for her abysmal dating life: Darcy sets the bar too high
Helen Halstead

Told in the language of the era and bringing Regency society vividly to life, "Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride" recalls Austen's theme of the necessity of individual growth in the maintainance of lasting bonds.

Linda Berdoll

"This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond being a Jane Austen sequel. Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines. And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heart-throb whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife. Their passion is consuming and idyllic through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage."

Rebecca Ann Collins

Cassandra Gardiner, daughter of Pride & Prejudice's Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, struggles to balance the competing demands of duty and family during the political and social changes sweeping through England in the Victorian era.

Amanda Grange
Darcy...is created as a romantic hero of depth and distinction. Historically accurate and psychologically astute, Grange's exploration of Darcy's view of the world is a fascinating glimpse into the heart of a truly noble man.
Amanda Grange

A delightfully thrilling, paranormal Pride and Prejudice sequel, full of danger, darkness and deep romantic love.

Jane Austen

"In the novel, Anne Elliot, the heroine Austen called 'almost too good for me,' has let herself be persuaded not to marry Frederick Wentworth, a fine and attractive man without means. Eight years later, Captain Wentworth returns from the Napoleonic Wars with a triumphant naval career behind him, a substantial fortune to his name, and an eagerness to wed. Austen explores the complexities of human relationships as they change over time."

Jane Austen

In early nineteenth-century England, a spirited young woman copes with the suit of a snobbish gentleman as well as the romantic entanglements of her four sisters.

On Film:

(Also available on VHS.) For black & white film buffs, check out the 1940 film version with Laurence Olivier and Maureen O'Sullivan. The screenplay for this film was written by Brave New World author Aldous Huxley. Finally, Bridget Jones's Diary puts a modern spin on Austen's classic.
