] ] I am trying to put a list together for the recommended reading board of all the fiction we know of which alludes to or quotes from JA.
] ] So far I have:
] ] Lions and Liquorice and BJ's Diary - as updated versions of P&P
] ] Cold Comfort Farm - several references to JA - the heroine wants to write a novel "as good as Persuasion"
] ] Le Divorce - which has a chapter beginning "It is a truth universally acknowledged..."
] ] I understand there's some reference to Emma in "The Bachelor Brothers Bed and Breakfast" but I don't know the details.
] ] Oh, and of course Kathleen T's Cory Bauer has a friend with cats called Darcy and Elizabeth... ;-)
] ] Any others?
] Stella Gibbons' novels are rife with illusions to Jane Austen. If you ever undertake to read them all, it's a fort of game you can play as you read.
] I'd like to add Susan F_ can't remember the name( HC should know), who published only a few years after JA herself adn was called the Scottish Jane Austen.
] Also Elizabeth Bowen and Angela Thirkell are both full of JA references.
It's Susan Ferriers (spelling wrong as usual).
In Anna Quindlen's One True Thing P&P is one of the novels the main character reads with her dying mother.
