Jane Austen

Somebody spent half an hour looking through this blog's archives on Easter Sunday, mere hours before I made a triple update. Their luck, either good or bad, is undoubtedly fearsome.

But I didn't notice that until now, as I got distracted by a Jane Austen novel I didn't know existed! Better still, it's an attempt by Austen to write and epistolary novel inspired by Les Liaisons dangereuses.

Jane Austen; dead 190 years and still suprising me.

(Lady Susan available from the Gutenberg Project; also better formatted and annotated at Pemberley.com. All this from a discussion of possible Jane Austen crossovers.)
