Read full description of the books An Unequal Marriage:It is a truth universally acknowledged that a reader who has finished reading Pride and Prejudice must be in want of more.
After re-reading Pride and Prejudice for class, I was absolutely smitten with Jane Austen and the characters she had created. I wanted more. Since a sequel by Jane Austen was out of the question, I was super excited when I spotted An Unequal Marriage in the library. My school librarian has impeccable taste, so it didn't even cross my mind An Unequal Marriage might be bad. Lesson learned. Jane Austen is Jane Austen, and no one can truly capture her writing style ever again. The thing that made Jane Austen so, well, Jane Austen wasn't just that she wrote a cute love story with wit, but that, underneath it all, she had something to say.
At least I didn't read Tennant's first book. Do yourself a favor and don't even bother with this. If you're desperate, you can probably find better fan fiction on the Internet.
Read information about the authorSince the early 1970s, when she was in her mid-thirties, Emma Tennant has been a prolific novelist and has established herself as one of the leading British exponents of "new fiction." This does not mean that she is an imitator of either the French nouveaux romanciers or the American post-modernists, although her work reveals an indebtedness to the methods and preoccupations of some of the latter. Like them, she employs parody and rewriting, is interested in the fictiveness of fiction, appropriates some science-fiction conventions, and exploits the possibilities of generic dislocation and mutation, especially the blending of realism and fantasy. Yet, although parallels can be cited and influences suggested, her work is strongly individual, the product of an intensely personal, even idiosyncratic, attempt to create an original type of highly imaginative fiction.
