Two reviews in major UK papers in the space of a week. What riches! Lord bless me! I shall go distracted.
Okay, enough channeling of Mrs. Bennet.
Here's an interesting thought: Jane Mansfield, the protagonist of the upcoming parallel story, RUDE AWAKENINGS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT (and no relation to the 1950s screen siren), will be able to go online and read The Observer, the same paper she could read in print in 1813 (it's been around since 1791). What I really can't wrap my mind around is that this nineteenth-century woman will be able to sit in her apartment in the twenty-first-century and read a 2009 review of CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT, which will tell her what's going on in the nineteenth-century life she left behind.
Brain in pretzels? Me, too. Absolut martini? Thought you'd never ask.
