Pride and Promiscuity: The Lost Sex Scenes of Jane Austen
By Arielle Eckstut
Hardcover, 145 pages
2003, Canongate Books Ltd
From the back of the book: In 2002, an amateur Jane Austen scholar, while staying at Hertfordshire estate, stumbled upon a hidden cache of manuscript pages and made an extraordinary literary discovery – lost scenes from Jane Austen’s novels that reveal an altogether different dimension of her oeuvre.
This book, much like The Princess Bride, would have you believe that it’s contents are legitimate; except that William Goldman really tricked me into thinking his story was real 😐 .
