JANE AUSTEN'S PRIDE AND PREJUDICE FLIPPED
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single woman in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a husband.
See one of your favorite classics in a completely different light with the tale of Eddie Bennet and Frangelica Darcy.
In this subversive take on one of the great works of English literature, author Kristina Jameson flips Jane Austen’s sentences—and world—around. Now, this story of Regency-era England is full of the down-on-their-luck Bennet brothers, the haughty Frangelica Darcy, and the scheming Georgiana Wickham. Clever and sharp-tongued Eddie Bennet finds himself caught between the charms of Georgiana and a strange attraction to the most peculiar Ms. Darcy. With a meddling father and flighty brothers to worry about, Eddie ends up making a big mistake. Can he fix it, or is he destined to a life of bachelorhood?
In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice Flipped, Jameson swaps the genders of all the characters to give Austen’s classic battle-of-the-sexes book a fresh new look. In doing so, she reveals new truths both about the gender politics of Austen’s age and their still-strong reverberations in the modern world. Along the way, Jameson insightfully explains her writing process and how the changes she made took the story in new and surprising directions.
