Description

Jane Austen takes a satirical swipe at the gothic novel in this classic book bursting with sly subversive wit.

‘Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated’ Martin Amis

Catherine Morland is a young girl with a very active imagination. Her naivety and love of sensational novels lead her to approach the fashionable social scene in Bath and her stay at nearby Northanger Abbey with preconceptions that have embarrassing and entertaining consequences.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY P.D. JAMES

Publisher Review

Jane Austen shocks me. Beside her, Joyce seems innocent as grass -- W.H. Auden Jane Austen's lightest and most playful novel * Independent * The most perfect artist among women, the writer whose books are immortal -- Virginia Woolf Somebody reading over my shoulder refuses to believe that I found Northanger Abbey funnier than Catch 22, but I did. So there -- Jenny Colgan Jane Austen is the pinnacle to which all other authors aspire -- J.K. Rowling
