Eleanor Murphy Book Club: The Jane Austen Book Club

Read this book with the Austen classic of your choice! The plot here is deceptively slim: five women and one enigmatic man meet on a monthly basis to discuss the novels of Jane Austen, one at a time. As they debate Marianne's marriage to Brandon and whether or not Charlotte Lucas is gay, they reveal nothing so much as their own "private Austen(s)." Like Austen, Fowler is a subversive wit and a wise observer of human interaction of all stripes.
