Jane Austen's
Mansfield Park

With a new afterword by Julia Quinn

Signet Classics recently repackaged Jane Austen's six complete novels, all with new afterwords by authors of popular fiction. From JQ's Essay:

I am an author of historical romances, which means that I spend an inordinate amount of time in front of my computer, dreaming of witty men, wittier women, and ways to torture them both before allowing a happily-ever-after. I know the difference between a duke and an earl (and the proper way to address each, both in person and in writing), and I regularly find myself researching such strange and random bits of knowledge as the journey length from Liverpool to Dublin in 1819, the location of Boucher's Portrait of Marie-Louise O'Murphy during the same year, and the earliest known usage of the phrase "Little Bo Peep." (At least twelve hours, Germany, and Shakespeare, as far as I can tell.)

Like most authors writing in my time period, I worship at the altar of Jane Austen, and while I do not credit her with the birth of the modern romance novel (what she did and what I do are far too dissimilar for that), she must be acknowledged as the genre's most vital and influential ancestor.
