From Shannon Hale, bestselling author of Austenland, comes Kind of a Big Deal: a hilarious, madcap story that will suck you in—literally. There's nothing worse than peaking in high school. Nobody knows that better than Josie Pie. She was kind of a big deal—she dropped out of high school to be a star! But the bigger you are, the harder you fall. And Josie fell. Hard. Ouch. Broadway dream: dead. Meanwhile, her life keeps imploding. Best friend: distant. Boyfriend: busy. Mom: not playing with a full deck? Desperate to escape, Josie gets into reading. Literally. She reads a book and suddenly she's inside it. And with each book, she’s a different character: a post-apocalyptic heroine, the lead in a YA rom-com, a 17th century wench in a corset. It’s alarming. But also . . . kind of amazing? It’s the perfect way to live out her fantasies. Book after book, Josie the failed star finds a new way to shine. But the longer she stays in a story, the harder it becomes to escape. Will Josie find a story so good that she just stays forever?

Romantic comedy following a woman infatuated with Jane Austen's fictional character Mr Darcy as she heads on vacation to a theme park designed to recreate the atmosphere of the Austen novels. The friends and would-be boyfriends of Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) have long since realised that she is obsessed to an unnatural degree with 'Pride and Prejudice'. Indeed, Jane's inability to find a stable relationship appears to be largely due to the fact that any prospective boyfriend is measured unfavourably against Colin Firth's Mr Darcy, of whom she has a life-sized cardboard cut-out in her room. In order to feed her obsession, Jane heads to 'Austenland', where Mrs. Wattlesbrook (Jane Seymour) presides over a costumed experience designed to create an immersive Austen world. Unfortunately, the low fee she pays lands Jane in less illustrious quarters than fellow customer Elizabeth Charming (Jennifer Coolidge), but will her poorer station prove any impediment to finding love?

Description :


Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe from New York Times bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz, is a sweet, sexy and hilarious gender-swapping, genre-satisfying re-telling, set in contemporary America and featuring one snooty Miss Darcy. Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones—one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy’s never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else’s drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family. Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He’s a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it’s just another one night stand. But why can’t she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?

Description :


Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man-perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own? In this addictive, charming and compassionate story, Shannon Hale brings out the Jane Austen obsessive in all of us.

Il est déjà compliqué de trouver l’homme idéal. Mais quand une jeune femme -- c’est le cas de Jane Hayes--, est obsédée par un personnage de roman, ça devient encore plus difficile. Comme si ce n’était pas suffisant, la jeune New-Yorkaise est totalement, irrationnellement, follement amoureuse de l’acteur qui incarne son personnage fétiche, Mr Darcy, dans une populaire adaptation d’Orgueil et préjugés de Jane Austen. Résultat, sa vie amoureuse est proche du néant: aucun homme n’est à la hauteur! Quand une parente lui laisse en héritage un séjour de trois semaines à Pembroke Park, un manoir anglais où les clientes fortunées vivent dans la peau des héroïnes de Jane Austen, les fantasmes de Jane deviennent un peu trop réels. Cette expérience finira-t-elle par débarrasser la jeune femme de son obsession ou au contraire, basculera-t-elle totalement dans sa chimère? Et rencontrera-t-elle son Mr Darcy? «Adorable! Le meilleur hommage qu’une obsédée de Jane Austen comme moi ait jamais lu!» Stephenie Meyer, auteure de la saga Twilight.

There's no place for pride in this Austen misadventure. Chloe Parker was born two centuries too late. A thirty-nine-year- old divorced mother, she runs her own antique letterpress business, is a lifelong member of the Jane Austen Society, and gushes over everything Regency. But her business is failing, threatening her daughter's future. What's a lady to do? Why, audition for a Jane Austen-inspired TV show set in England, of course. What Chloe thinks is a documentary turns out to be a reality dating show set in 1812. Eight women are competing to snare Mr. Wrightman, the heir to a gorgeous estate, along with a $100,000 prize. So Chloe tosses her bonnet into the ring, hoping to transform from stressed-out Midwest mom to genteel American heiress and win the money. With no cell phones, indoor plumbing, or deodorant to be found, she must tighten her corset and flash some ankle to beat out women younger, more cutthroat, and less clumsy than herself. But the witty and dashing Mr. Wrightman proves to be a prize worth winning, even if it means the gloves are off...

Description :


This collection of twelve new essays examines some of what Jane Austen has become in the two hundred years since her death. Some of the chapters explore adaptations or repurposings of her work while others trace her influence on a surprising variety of different kinds of writing, sometimes even when there is no announced or obvious debt to her. In so doing they also inevitably shed light on Austen herself. Austen is often considered romantic and not often considered political, but both those perceptions are challenged her, as is the idea that she is primarily a writer for and about women. Her books are comic and ironic, but they have been reworked and drawn upon in very different genres and styles. Collectively these essays testify to the extraordinary versatility and resonance of Austen’s books.

Description :


Game theory—the study of how people make choices while interacting with others—is one of the most popular technical approaches in social science today. But as Michael Chwe reveals in his insightful new book, Jane Austen explored game theory's core ideas in her six novels roughly two hundred years ago—over a century before its mathematical development during the Cold War. Jane Austen, Game Theorist shows how this beloved writer theorized choice and preferences, prized strategic thinking, and analyzed why superiors are often strategically clueless about inferiors. Exploring a diverse range of literature and folktales, this book illustrates the wide relevance of game theory and how, fundamentally, we are all strategic thinkers.
