Northanger Abbey (Vintage Classics Austen Series)
Jane Austen, P. D. James
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.
