Pride and Promiscuity: The Lost Sex Scenes of Jane Austen Summary


So it wasn't just subtext after all! In an unparalleled literary discovery, previously unknown writings unmask the Jane Austen hidden from history and reveal a writer whose sense and sensibility were more than matched by her knowledge of sex and sensuality. In a pitch-perfect literary parody, Arielle Eckstut and David Auburn claim to have stumbled upon lost manuscript pages from Jane Austen's novels, along with shocking letters to her sister and publisher. The 'excerpts' take readers behind closed doors to behold some very naughty goings-on among the characters of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma and all of Austen's novels. Emma, it is revealed, takes self-satisfaction to a whole new level; Charlotte Lucas dresses up as Lady Catherine de Bourgh to give Mr. Collins the spanking of his life; and Fanny and Edmund are not the only ones at Mansfield Park flirting with incest. Elegantly packaged and 'authenticated' by a so-called Austen expert, Pride and Promiscuity belongs on the bookshelf of Austen fanatics and the millions who have made the films based on her works so popular. Even the most serious literary scholar would bet his tenure at whist to get his hands on this spirited and witty gem that proves Jane is hotter than any of us ever imagined!
