Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice
by Curtis Sittenfeld
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My review of the latest Austen Project novel is available at Austenprose.
In one of my favorite scenes, Mrs. Bennet may have changed centuries, but she's still the same mess:
"The older woman was weeping with a vigor that appeared unsustainable, yet the voluminous scattering of tissues across the bed, nightstand, and nearby rug suggested that she had been at it for some time; indeed, of the four tissue boxes sitting atop the mattress, two were empty, one was half-empty, and one was as yet unopened but clearly waiting to be deployed."
