9780061863134: Pride/Prejudice: A Novel of Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, and Their Forbidden Lovers

“Audacious and masterful….True to Austen’s spirit, Ann Herendeen has given us a compelling, and sexual, novel of manners.”
—Pamela Regis, author of A Natural History of the Romance Novel

 

Ann Herendeen’s Pride/Prejudice—a novel of Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennett, and their other loves—revisits the classic Jane Austen work to “fill in the gaps” that the original left unexplained and unexplored. Ingenious, brazen, and unrelentingly entertaining—yet always appreciative and respectful of one of the world’s most beloved literary works—this masterful reinvention by the acclaimed author of Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander is truly a Pride and Prejudice for the 21st Century.

Review:

“Audacious and masterful. . . . True to Austen’s spirit, Ann Herendeen has given us a compelling, and sexual, novel of manners. In scenes that illuminate the motives and intellects of our favorite characters, we witness their most private moments. Delectable.” (Pamela Regis, author of A Natural History of the Romance Novel)

“Ann Herendeen has turned Jane Austen’s beloved classic novel on its head with this beautifully written ‘what if’ story. It is the erotic retelling of Jane’s very eighteenth century characters. The book is surprisingly creative and makes this version timely, realistic and clever fun. An entertaining read!” (Sandra Kitt, national bestselling author of Close Encounters and For All We Know)

“I gobbled up this delicious book in one sexy/cerebral reading orgy. Now I need to go back and marvel at my leisure, at its author’s wealth of insight and imagination.” (Pam Rosenthal, RITA Award-winning author of The Edge of Impropriety)

From the Back Cover:

For readers who've loved Jane Austen's most popular novel—the inestimable Pride and Prejudice—questions have always remained. What is the real nature of Darcy's intense friendship with Charles Bingley, to explain why he would prevent Bingley's marriage to Elizabeth's beautiful and virtuous sister Jane? How can Darcy reconcile his own desire for Elizabeth with his determination to save his friend from a similar entanglement? What is the disturbing history behind Darcy's tortured relationship with his foster brother, George Wickham? And what other intimacies, besides their cherished friendship, are exchanged between Elizabeth and Charlotte Lucas?

Ann Herendeen, acclaimed author of Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander, reimagines this classic love story, focusing on the untold aspects of Jane Austen's timeless novel. Pride/Prejudice brings to light all the buried secrets, potential scandals, and unspoken, forbidden loves of Austen's story, weaving a tale of intertwined passions, pride humbled, and ultimately, freedom from prejudice.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jane Austen s most popular novel has enthralled generations of readers, as proud Mr. Darcy meets his match in witty and prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet. But only now can the hidden story be told, of the two parallel loves that complicate this ideal romance: Darcy s controlling affection for the gentleman-like Charles Bingley; and the sympathetic intimacy between Elizabeth and her more practical friend, Charlotte Lucas. Written in a comparable bright and sparkling style, Pride/Prejudice fills the gaps in Austen s story, daring to imagine the full truth suggested by the original. What is Darcy s real motivation for preventing Bingley s marriage to Elizabeth s beautiful and virtuous sister Jane? How can Darcy reconcile his desire for Elizabeth with his determination to save his friend from a similar entanglement? And what is the disturbing history behind Darcy s tortured relationship with his foster brother, George Wickham? Pride/Prejudice brings to light all the buried secrets, weaving a tale of intertwined passions that must be resolved through honesty and forgiveness, the humbling of pride and freedom from prejudice.
