Review

Praise for ELIGIBLE:

‘If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it’ Elle

‘These days, if Curtis Sittenfeld writes it, I read it’ Judy Blume

‘A masterpiece . . . whether or not you're an Austen fan, you'll adore this version: This is Pride and Prejudice 2.0 and I must confess, I liked it more than the original. There I said it’ Stylist

‘Bold and brilliant’ Glamour

‘Eligible has all the charm, wit and romance of Pride & Prejudice and also takes these characters who are such a stalwart feature of our literary landscape and treats them with such affection and humour, that I defy anyone not to find Eligible an absolute delight’ Red

‘Dazzling’ Woman and Home

‘Fizzy’ and ‘Funny’ Psychologies

‘Such a feast of a book’ Nigella Lawson

‘Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition… not since “Clueless,” which transported Emma to Beverly Hills, has Austen been so delightedly interpreted’ The New York Times

‘An enjoyably light-hearted romp’ Financial Times

‘Hilarious and endearing family drama’ Kirkus Reviews

‘Effortlessly entertaining and delightfully readable’ The National

‘A delightful romp for not only Austen devotees but also lovers of romantic comedies and sly satire, as well . . . Bestselling Sittenfeld plus Jane Austen? What more could mainstream fiction readers ask for?’ Booklist

‘Sittenfeld adeptly updates and channels Austen’s narrative voice―the book is full of smart observations on gender and money. . . . A clever retelling of an old-fashioned favourite’ Publishers Weekly

Praise for CURTIS SITTENFELD:

‘Novelists get called master storytellers all the time, but Sittenfeld really is one’ Maggie Shipstead

‘When it comes to tearing apart contemporary American family life, Sittenfeld is up there in a class of her own’ Guardian

From the Inside Flap

The Bennet sisters have been summoned from New York City.

Lizzy and Jane are good daughters. They've come home to suburban Cincinnati to get their mother to stop feeding their father steak as he recovers from heart surgery, to tidy up the crumbling Tudor-style family home, and to wrench their three sisters from their various states of arrested development.

But once they are under the same roof, old patterns return fast. Soon enough they are being berated for their single status, their only respite the early morning runs they escape on together. For two successful women in their late thirties, it really is too much to bear. That is, until the Lucas family's BBQ throws them in the way of some eligible single men . . .

Chip Bingley is not only a charming doctor, he's a reality TV star too. But Chip's friend, haughty neurosurgeon, Fitzwilliam Darcy, can barely stomach Cincinnati or its inhabitants. Jane is entranced by Chip; Lizzy, sceptical of Darcy. As Lizzy is consumed by her father's mounting medical bills, her wayward sisters and Cousin Willie trying to stick his tongue down her throat, it isn't only the local chilli that will leave a bad aftertaste.

But where there are hearts that beat and mothers that push, the mysterious course of love will resolve itself in the most entertaining and unlikely of ways. And from the hand of Curtis Sittenfeld, Pride & Prejudice is catapulted into our modern world singing out with hilarity and truth.

At once familiar and utterly surprising, this is Curtis Sittenfeld at her very best.
