As a teenager, Jane Austen wrote "Edgar and Emma"-a withering satire on sentimental novels running four uproarious pages. Now Robert Rodi has taken the brief text of this early story and expanded it into a full-length novel in the mature Austen style. Here you'll find all the hallmarks of Austen's immortal masterworks: a witty heroine, a hesitant hero, a romantic rival, a charismatic cad, several indefatigable talkers, a shattering crisis, shocking secrets revealed, and moments of the highest hilarity. You'll also find some character types new to the extended Austensphere, including a firebrand preacher, a pair of ardent dog lovers, and a sardonic Oxford don. It's a brilliantly witty homage to a beloved novelist's oeuvre, by the acclaimed author of "Bitch In a Bonnet: Reclaiming Jane Austen from the Stiff, the Simps, the Snobs and the Saps." (summary taken from Goodreads.com)

This is a copy signed by the author, Robert Rodi.

I enjoyed this book very much; it was sort of predictable, but nevertheless, I love the Austen style and the silliness running throughout the novel.

Thank you so much for the book! I’m interested to see how the Austen concept will be brought to life by a modern author!
