'Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated' Martin Amis

Catherine Morland is a young girl with a very active imagination. Her naivety and love of sensational novels lead her to approach the fashionable social scene in Bath and her stay at nearby Northanger Abbey with preconceptions that have embarrassing and entertaining consequences.

Author Biography

Jane Austen was born in Steventon Rectory on 16th December 1775. She began writing Pride and Prejudice when she was twenty-two years old. Originally titled First Impressions, it was initially rejected by publishers and only published in 1813 after much revision. She published four novels in her lifetime, Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816). Jane Austen died on 18th July 1817. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were both published posthumously in 1818.

P. D. James is an award-winning crime writer and author of Death Comes to Pemberley. She was awarded an OBE in 1983, and was created a life peer in 1991.

Leanne Shapton is an illustrator, author and publisher based in New York City. http-//leanneshapton.com/

Review

Jane Austen shocks me. Beside her, Joyce seems innocent as grass -- W.H. Auden Jane Austen's lightest and most playful novel Independent The most perfect artist among women, the writer whose books are immortal -- Virginia Woolf Somebody reading over my shoulder refuses to believe that I found Northanger Abbey funnier than Catch 22, but I did. So there -- Jenny Colgan Jane Austen is the pinnacle to which all other authors aspire -- J.K. Rowling
