Sanditon - Penguin Clothbound Classics (Hardback)Jane Austen (author)
- In stock online
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.
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.
