Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775-1817) is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most beloved English writers of all time. Best known for her six widely adapted novels—Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey—she used her writing to explore and critique British society and the constraints placed on women by social expectations and economic circumstances, especially in regards to love and marriage.

  • Lady Susan

    By Jane Austen

    Read by Rosalyn Landor

    Lady Susan Vernon is a selfish, attractive, and unscrupulous widow, on the hunt for a new husband.

    "In audio, it is a particular delight, as it showcases Austen's subversive and rapier wit and her strong ability to create character out of dialogue alone. The catty cat-and-mouse plot makes a wonderful, brief spree of a listen, and Landor excels in creating the various tonal implications of the letters that make up the story. Spanning just two discs, and two and one-half hours, it is a perfect confection." - Booklist, Starred Review
