Pride and Prejudice and Kitties: A Cat-Lover's Romp Through Jane Austen's Classic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What if Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was told from a cat’s point of view? On the heels of smash hits like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I Can Has Cheezburger, this hilarious mash-up by children’s author Pamela Jane and photographer Deborah Guyol spins a fresh, quirky take on two of the things we just can’t get enough of: classic cats and classic Jane.

Pride and Prejudice and Kitties juxtaposes wacky photos of cats with the wicked humor of Jane Austen, and it’s just in time for the 200-year anniversary of the publication of the original Pride and Prejudice. Soulful Mr. Darcy gazes at Elizabeth Bennet in fascination; hysterical Mrs. Bennet yowls that no one understands her; somnolent Mr. Hurst passes out on the sofa after dinner; arrogant Lady Catherine hisses at Elizabeth. Each photo includes a hilarious caption that goes along with the text of Pride and Prejudice, told from a feline perspective.

Pride and Prejudice and Kitties is a book for cat-lovers, Austen-lovers, and people who love to laugh — in other words, just about everyone. The adorable meets the absurd!

Synopsis:

Finally, chick lit meets kit lit!

About the Author

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

Pamela Jane coaches writers, conducts writing workshops nationally and internationally, and has written twenty-seven children’s books including Little Goblins Ten and Noelle of the Nutcracker.  Pamela also contributes to the popular blog, womensmemoirs.com. Like Jane Austen, Pamela is a desperate walker and, unlike Jane, a very bad piano player.

Deborah Guyol has studied photography with Larry Sultan, Judy Dater, and Ellen Brooks, and her photographs have appeared in print and web publications. She is also a lawyer and co-author of The Complete Guide to Contract Lawyering. She edits a legal publication, teaches creative writing, and conducts writing workshops. She has loved the novels of Jane Austen since she was a teenager and believes she has finally committed Pride and Prejudice to memory. Her current cats, Dexter and Dudley, do not share her literary and artistic interests.
