    St. Martin's Press 2010; US$ 15.99

    "Nobody, I believe, has ever found it possible to like the heroine of Mansfield Park ." --Lionel Trilling In this ingenious new twist on Mansfield Park , the famously meek Fanny Price--whom Jane Austen's own mother called "insipid"--has been utterly transformed; she is now a rich heiress who is spoiled, condescending, and generally hated throughout... more...

When a neighbor passes away quite suddenly, Dido feels she is ideally placed to observe the reaction of the community, but her suitor, Mr. William Lomax, feels otherwise. As Dido presses on, she learns more about... more...

  • The Blighted Cliffsby Edwin Thomas

    Transworld 2011; US$ 9.86

  • Deceiving Wild Creaturesby Jeremy Over

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 7.26

    The naturalist Gilbert White is at the heart of this collection. Like him, Jeremy Over explores an ecology with meticulous acuity.
