Overview

*NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING KATE BECKINSALE, CHLOE SEVIGNY & STEPHEN FRY*

ACCLAIM FOR THE BOOK: "Lady Susan remains deliciously wicked" (Vogue); "Very, very funny" (New York Times), " A] delicately sincere inversion of Austen's amused irony" (New York Review of Books); "Quirky and hilarious" (Publishers Weekly); "An eccentrically cheeky tribute" (New Yorker)

A sharp comedy of manners, and a fiendishly funny treat for Jane Austen and Whit Stillman fans alike
Impossibly beautiful, disarmingly witty, and completely self-absorbed: Meet Lady Susan Vernon, both the heart and the thorn of Love & Friendship. Recently widowed with a daughter who's coming of age as quickly as their funds are dwindling, Lady Susan makes it her mission to find them wealthy husbands--and fast. But when her attempts to secure their futures result only in the wrath of a prominent conquest's wife and the title of 'most accomplished coquette in England', Lady Susan must rethink her strategy. Unannounced, she arrives at her brother-in-law's country estate. Here she intends to take refuge - in no less than luxury, of course - from the colorful rumors trailing her, while finding another avenue to 'I do'. Before the scandalizing gossip can run its course, though, romantic triangles ensue.
