I enjoyed Lady Susan very much, quite the different "heroine" from JA's usual!
I was fascinated in the Epistle style of writing, I had never read a novel done this way before. I imagine it must be very difficult for the novelist's "writers" to be bevlievable in this narrative form. I mean, how many people can remember conversations verbatim as these writers are obliged to? And nothing is ever allowed to be in the present, all action is being recounted from memory and personal bias; there is no "author's voice." And yet, some of JA's novels began their life in this way, P&P, S&S...
I wondered if anyone had read other novels in this style and what they thought of them?
