A brilliantly executed parody of Jane Austen's 'forgotten' sex scenes

Pride And Promiscuity Summary

Pride And Promiscuity: The Lost Sex Scenes of Jane Austen by Arielle Eckstut

In 2002, an amateur Jane Austen scholar, while staying at a Hertfordshire estate, stumbled upon a hidden cache of manuscript pages and made an extraordinary literary discovery - lost scenes from Jane Austen's novels that reveal an altogether different dimension to her oeuvre. Pride and Prejudice's Bingley sisters appear as Sapphic seductresses; Mansfield Park's incest subtext becomes manifest; and Darcy gets more than his shirt wet. This incisive parody of academic study is sure to astonish and delight mischievous Austenites.

Pride And Promiscuity Reviews

Arielle Eckstut brings her ready imagination to conjuring the sex scenes that Austen was not able to provide; she can write as if this were homage rather than desecration. * * The Guardian * *
Make of Pride and Promiscuity what you will, but it's so impudently indulgent, so wantonly imaginative, only a killjoy could dismiss it with a sniff. * * Erotic Review * *
Eckstut, I mean of course, Austen, has not gone over the top. . . she has stayed faithful to both tone and characters. Reader, it works. * * Time Out * *
A parody to delight Austen aficionados * * The Scotsman * *
A wickedly funny collection that satirises the Austen oeuvre yet also manages to play implicit homage by echoing her incomparable style with astonishing fidelity.
