Emma – Jane Austen
Austen’s feistiest heroine in a gorgeous pocket sized hardback, illustrated by Hugh Thomson and with an afterword by Hugh Pinching. Oft-copied but never bettered, Jane Austen’s Emma is a remarkable comedy of manners.
This edition is illustrated by the celebrated Hugh Thomson and includes an afterword by David Pinching. Austen follows the charming but insensitive Emma Woodhouse as she sets out on an ill-fated career of match-making in the little town of Highbury. Taking the pretty but dreary Harriet Smith as her subject, Emma creates misunderstandings and chaos as she tries to find Harriet a suitor, until she begins to realize it isn’t the lives of others she must try to transform.
