Jane Austen Week: Mansfield Park

Mansfield Park (FULL Audiobook)

Share via Email The quill awaits

By Deborah Yaffe, Apr 16 The first three volumes have now been published, and each is, in its own way, pretty bad. Could it be that HarperCollins is having trouble persuading writers with the appropriate track record to jump aboard this listing ship?

Of course, all these bad vibes could vanish next year, when the American novelist Curtis Sittenfeld releases her version of Pride and Prejudice. This week brought hints that Sittenfeld may be trying to make her book into something more interesting, or at least more fun, than its Austen Project predecessors: Twitter-powered glimpses of a Sittenfeld book with a new title Eligible , a non-British setting Cincinnati, standing in for Meryton and perhaps a reimagined Darcy forty-something doctor, rather than twenty-eight-year-old rich guy.

The first Austen Project outing -- 's Sense and Sensibility, by Joanna Trollope , a British novelist of domestic life — was slavishly faithful to the original, even when the cultural norms of nineteenth-century courtship made no sense in a twenty-first-century context. The newest — the just-published in the US Emma: We wade through many pages devoted to Mr.

Once that story gets underway, Austen fans are likely to feel more disoriented than enthralled. Look in vain for any parallel to Mr. By the time Emma falls into the arms of her designated hero, so truncated is the plot that the happy couple seem barely to have exchanged a word.

Here and there, McCall Smith offers glimpses of the playful, irreverent book he might have written. Emma paints Harriet in the nude, scandalizing the Hartfield staff.

John Knightley is a long-haired, tattooed fashion photographer who sweeps Isabella away on his motorcycle. The aging hippie Mrs. Goddard passes out hash brownies at the Box Hill picnic. Alas, McCall Smith fails to milk his tantalizing hints for their full comic or subversive potential.

The book reads like the Emma update he sketched on the back of a cocktail napkin during lunch with his agent and then fleshed out, just barely, during a couple of afternoons of desultory work. No need to do any real work here! Those Austen fans will swallow anything!
