Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Audacious and masterful….True to Austens spirit, Ann Herendeen has given us a compelling, and sexual, novel of manners.”
—Pamela Regis, author of A Natural History of the Romance Novel

 

Ann Herendeens Pride/Prejudice—a novel of Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennett, and their other loves—revisits the classic Jane Austen work to “fill in the gaps” that the original left unexplained and unexplored. Ingenious, brazen, and unrelentingly entertaining—yet always appreciative and respectful of one of the worlds most beloved literary works—this masterful reinvention by the acclaimed author of Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander is truly a Pride and Prejudice for the 21st Century.

Review:

"No Cliff's Notes required for this classic, recast by Herendeen (Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander) with a bisexual backstory that would have had the Regency author blushing. Though Herendeen claims she's merely unearthed the 'hidden' story from clues already written into the original, what unquestionably occurs in this unlikely redo is erotic, witty and as often silly as refreshing. Here, Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy match wits and sexual appetites while engaging in same-sex relationships, she with older-and-wiser Charlotte, he with younger and pliable Charles Bingley, who struggles with his attraction to Elizabeth's sister, Jane. Sure, the permutations make the already complicated plot even more convoluted, but the sex — hokey as it is with all the pulsing and throbbing — helps ease the prideful misunderstandings and ignorant prejudices." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

For readers who've loved Jane Austen's most popular novel—the inestimable Pride and Prejudice—questions have always remained. What is the real nature of Darcy's intense friendship with Charles Bingley, to explain why he would prevent Bingley's marriage to Elizabeth's beautiful and virtuous sister Jane? How can Darcy reconcile his own desire for Elizabeth with his determination to save his friend from a similar entanglement? What is the disturbing history behind Darcy's tortured relationship with his foster brother, George Wickham? And what other intimacies, besides their cherished friendship, are exchanged between Elizabeth and Charlotte Lucas?

Ann Herendeen, acclaimed author of Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander, reimagines this classic love story, focusing on the untold aspects of Jane Austen's timeless novel. Pride/Prejudice brings to light all the buried secrets, potential scandals, and unspoken, forbidden loves of Austen's story, weaving a tale of intertwined passions, pride humbled, and ultimately, freedom from prejudice.
