New book to mark P&P bicentenary
2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s best-loved novel. To mark this special occasion Hazel Jones and Maggie Lane have written this beautifully illustrated 64-page book looking at the history of the work that Jane Austen called her “darling child”.
To celebrate the bicentenary of the book’s first publication in 1813, Hazel and Maggie investigate the reasons for its popularity and describe the extraordinary history, reception and afterlife of the phenomenon that is Pride and Prejudice.
Celebrating Pride and Prejudice: 200 Years of Jane Austen’s Darling Child will be published by Lansdown Media in the autumn price £6.99 (about $12).
Copies will be available at the Jane Austen Festival in Bath (country fayre, September 15) and the Jane Austen Society of North America AGM in Brooklyn, New York (October 4-6).
