It seems to be Jane Austen week. Hot on the heels of Elizabeth Hanbury’s post yesterday, I felt I had to draw attention to an article in The Sunday Times intriguingly called ‘Pride and Prejudice as zombie pulp fiction’!
You can read the article here.
But that’s not all. At the end of the article, there’s a round-up of the ‘Jane Austen industry’ by Louis Wise and it mentions me and my book!
Louis Wise says: ‘Emma, meanwhile, has been updated to The Importance of Being Emma: in Juliet Archer’s novel, our heroine works in marketing, Harriet Smith is her PA and Knightley is in organics.’
I promise you, in my version of Emma there’s not a zombie in sight – although Jane Fairfax’s skin’s so pale she might pass for a vampire!
