Arts & Letters Live: Curtis Sittenfeld - Jane Austen Remixed
In Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel, Eligible, Lizzy Bennett is a high-powered magazine editor in New York. When her father falls ill, she and her sister Jane return to the home in Ohio that they thought they’d left behind forever. At once familiar and utterly surprising, Sittenfeld delivers a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice. She is the bestselling author of several novels including Prep and The Man of My Dreams. Her nonfiction has appeared in the New York Times and on Public Radio’s This American Life.
