Content descriptions

General Note:
A contemporary retelling of Jane Austen's Sense and sensibility.
Formatted Contents Note:
Paperback -Joanna Trollope's much-anticipated contemporary reworking of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility will launch The Austen Project and be one of the most talked about books of 2013. 'It's hugely exciting to attempt the reworking of one of the best novels written by one of our greatest novelists. This is a project which requires consummate respect above all else; not an emulation, but a tribute.' Joanna Trollope The Austen Project is a major new series of six novels teaming up authors of global literary significance with Jane Austen's six complete works. The pairing of Joanna Trollope and Jane Austen received global coverage, from the NEW YORK TIMES to the TIMES OF INDIA. The Austen Project continues with Val McDermid's reworking of Northanger Abbey in Spring 2014 and Curtis Sittenfeld's Pride and Prejudice in Autumn 2014.
Summary, etc.:
A modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic follows the Dashwood sisters--Elinor, Marianne and Margaret--as they, after the death of their father, must come to terms with the cruelties of life without the status of their country house, the protection of the family name or the comfort of an inheritance.
