Jane Austen’s legacy keeps on giving


Those who, like me, were lucky enough to be at Queer Company 2 last weekend may recall me mentioning Robert Rodi’s Bitch in a Bonnet books (strapline: Reclaiming Jane Austen From the Stiffs, the Snobs, the Simps and the Saps) during the launch of A Certain Persuasion.

Well, fellow Janeites may be interested to hear Mr Rodi now has another book out: Edgar and Emma: A Novel After Jane Austen. Haven’t read it yet, but Bitch in a Bonnet had me cackling away to myself like a madwoman on the train to Oxford. 😉


About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at: www.jlmerrow.com
