Краткое описание

Dancing with Mr. Darcy: Stories Inspired by Jane Austen and Chawton House: The Best of the Jane Austen Short Story Competition.

The author of The Little Stranger, The Night Watch, and Fingersmith, all three shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Sarah Waters was invited to be the final judge for the inaugural Jane Austen Short Story Competition, celebrating Austen, her works, and the refuge she found in her brother Edward's Chawton House estate. Here Waters presents the award winner, "Jane Austen Over the Styx," with the two runners-up ("Second Thoughts" and "Jayne") and 17 more of her favorites, introduced by Waters and by Rebecca Smith, the great-great-great-great-great niece of Jane Austen. "This collection offers a wide variety of takes on Austen, her life, her literature, and her impact—with nary a zombie in sight. The winning entry, Victoria Owen's 'Jane Austen over the Styx' finds Jane on judgment day being called to task by five characters she skewered in her novels. Elsa A. Solender's 'Second Thoughts' draws from Austen's biography to explore her decision to accept the proposal of Harris Bigg-Withers, only to recant the next day. Kirsty Mitchell's 'Jayne' gets inside the head of a soft-core model who is both well read and eminently practical. Elizabeth Hopkinson's 'The Delaford Ladies' Detective Agency' sends up Alexander McCall Smith's series, casting the now-married Elinor and Marianne Dashwood as sleuths in a lighthearted mystery. Clair Humphies details an Austen-themed bachelorette weekend that goes awry until a dashing Mr. Darcy-type shows up in 'The Jane Austen Hen Weekend'."—Booklist
