Also Elizabeth Bowen and Angela Thirkell are both full of JA references.
any titles, Cassia?
As with Stella Gibbons both Elizabeth Bowen and Angela Thirkell tend to refer to JA a lot. Angela Thirlkell titles include: The Duke's Daughter, Enter Sir Robert, Happy Return, The Headmistress (extremely funny). These are currently available from Penguin. Elizabeth Bowen's titles include: The Death of the Heart (a bit like Persuasion), The Hotel, The Little Girls. I think there are also Penguin editions of her work as well.
IMO, Thirkell is funnier but Bowen is a finer writer.
