Reader, I Married Him by Tracy Chevalier

`This collection is stormy, romantic, strong - the Full Bronte' The Times

A collection of short stories celebrating Charlotte Bronte, published in the year of her bicentenary and stemming from the now immortal words from her great work Jane Eyre.

The twenty-one stories in Reader, I Married Him - one of the most celebrated lines in fiction - are inspired by Jane Eyre and shaped by its perennially fascinating themes of love, compromise and self-determination.

A bohemian wedding party takes an unexpected turn for the bride and her daughter; a family trip to a Texan waterpark prompts a life-changing decision; Grace Poole defends Bertha Mason and calls the general opinion of Jane Eyre into question. Mr Rochester reveals a long-kept secret in "Reader, She Married Me", and "The Mirror" boldly imagines Jane's married life after the novel ends. A new mother encounters an old lover after her daily swim and inexplicably lies to him, and a fitness instructor teaches teenage boys how to handle a pit bull terrier by telling them Jane Eyre's story.

Edited by Tracy Chevalier, this collection brings together some of the finest and most creative voices in fiction today, to celebrate and salute the strength and lasting relevance of Charlotte Bronte's game-changing novel and its beloved narrator.

Reader, I Married Him Reviews

`Dazzling' DAILY MAIL

`These stories will enrich and complicate future readings of Jane Eyre, as the best fan fiction should' GUARDIAN

`The success of this book owes much to [Chevalier's] enthusiasm ... it's quite amazing to see the quality of work on show' EVENING STANDARD

`A terrific set of stories by some of our leading novelists, each of whom engages with a chosen aspect of Jane Eyre' THE NEW STATESMAN

`This collection is stormy, romantic, strong - the Full Bronte' The Times

`A clever idea well-executed; a treat for fans of short fiction and for Bronte's many ardent fans' KIRKUS REVIEWS

`Exemplary...written by some of today's best female writers' THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

`Absorbing and entertaining, READER, I MARRIED HIM is an inventive and a satisfying tribute to a great novel' Book Reporter

`These pieces create a beguiling picture of women and men and desire, in which everyone is searching, like Jane, for happiness and wondering whether marriage is really an answer. The book acts as a prism spreading all kinds of literary and historical refractions, and it's a reminder that Charlotte Bronte, too, has many sides' GLOBE AND MAIL
