Waterstones Says

Jane Austen’s final, unfinished work bears all the hallmarks of her ironic, insightful genius. A tale of reinvention and hypochondria with an unforgettable cast of characters, Sanditon is now a major ITV adaptation written by Andrew Davies.

A stunning new Clothbound Classics edition of Jane Austen's tantalizing final work - set to be a major Andrew Davies ITV adaptation this autumn

Written in the last months of Austen's life, Sanditon features a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators in a newly established seaside resort, and shows the author contemplating a changing society with scepticism and amusement. It tells the story of Charlotte Heywood, who is transported by a chance accident from her rural hometown to Sanditon, where she is exposed to the intrigues and dalliances of a small town - and encounters the intriguingly handsome Sidney Parker.

This edition also includes the early epistolary novel Lady Susan and the delightful fragment The Watsons.

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

“Jane Austen fan”

Having read all of Jane Austen's works during my university years I have always been a fan, but for some reason I never read Lady Susan / The Watsons / Sanditon so that was a beautiful way to spend yesterday in... More

“Unbearably disappointing”

Unfortunately I saw the TV adaptation before reading this. I knew Austen died before she finished it, but the 10+ chapters in this edition merely introduce the main characters and their foibles. Indeed the hero,... More
