Jane Austen was born in 1775 and went on to become one of the greatest novelists of English literature. Her work includes such perennial favorites as Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion and Emma, and has been adapted for radio, television and film.
Tess Gammell was born in 1987 and when she is not sewing miniature bonnets or welding tiny lamp posts, she works as a freelance set designer on a variety of scales, including fashion, film, events and window displays. She lives in London.
Alex Goodwin was born in 1985 and when he is not hacking the work of a certain famous English novelist into guinea-pig-friendly chunks, he writes his own fiction (which he hopes one day might receive the same treatment). He lives in London.
"We thought Pride & Prejudice couldn't get much better--then we saw lines from Jane Austen's classic novel paired with some seriously dapper rodents." --EW.com "This may be the definitive version of Pride and Prejudice. If they could get War and Peace down to this length, it would be a service to mankind." --Salman Rushdie "As far as I'm concerned, it's the perfect combo: I love old literature and I have eaten a ton of rodents over the years. In fact, I've just had a desert mouse that I stewed in urine." --Bear Grylls "An entirely new, adorably hilarious take on the classic story . . . This affection¬ate, quietly dramatic homage is the perfect gift for Austen-philes, Austen-newbies, guinea-pig aficionados and anyone who appreciates a tale well told." --BookPage
