A brilliantly executed parody of Jane Austen's 'forgotten' sex scenes

About the Author

ARIELLE ECKSTUT began her lifelong love affair with Jane Austen at the age of five. Since then she has written over 150 critical essays on the great authoress (although none, as of yet, have been published) and maintains one of the largest collections of authentic Austenian period costumes in Northern California. In her spare time Arielle is a literary agent with the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency.


* Arielle Eckstut brings her ready imagination to conjuring the sex scenes that Austen was not able to provide; she can write as if this were homage rather than desecration. The Guardian * Make of Pride and Promiscuity what you will, but it's so impudently indulgent, so wantonly imaginative, only a killjoy could dismiss it with a sniff. Erotic Review * Eckstut, I mean of course, Austen, has not gone over the top... she has stayed faithful to both tone and characters. Reader, it works. Time Out * A parody to delight Austen aficionados The Scotsman * A wickedly funny collection that satirises the Austen oeuvre yet also manages to play implicit homage by echoing her incomparable style with astonishing fidelity.
