Jane Austen and Shelley in the Garden

Jane Austen and Shelley in the Garden: An Illustrated NovelJane Austen and Shelley in the Garden: An Illustrated Novel by Janet Todd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Head over to Austenprose for my review of Janet Todd's latest novel. Jane Austen lives in retired professor Fran's head and has plenty to say about Fran and her friends.


“Jane Austen usually avoids commenting on other shadows, but can’t resist nimbly descending the stairs to whisper to Fran, Your Shelley’s a hypochondriac. Had I known this, I might have lodged him in Sanditon and dosed him with asses’ milk.

I do agree, Fran whispers back. He could have been mates with Sir Edward Denham and talked high poetry. They both giggle. (84)
