'Jane Austen's Emma is her masterpiece, mixing the sparkle of her early books with a deep sensibility' Observer

Emma is young, rich and independent. She has decided not to get married and instead spends her time organising her acquaintances' love affairs. Her plans for the matrimonial success of her new friend Harriet, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Whatever age you are, Austen has something for you. I would go further, in fact, to assert that a reader never comes away from an Austen novel empty-handed * Joanna Trollope *
That young lady has a talent for describing the involvements of feelings and characters of ordinary life which is to me the most wonderful I ever met with -- Sir Walter Scott
I'd like to write a play as perfect as Emma -- Simon Gray
Austen's characters are unquestionably one key to her greatness. Her understanding of the human heart is forensic and also frosted with the necessary detachment that gives deeper meaning to her rendering of human frailty * Guardian *
It is the cleverest of books. I especially love the dialogue - every speech reveals the characters' obsessions and preoccupations, yet it remains perfectly natural...absolutely gripping -- Susannah Clarke
