Austen’s fans are many. Whether they are re-reading Emma (for the fifth time) or–perhaps against their better judgement–picking up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (coming soon in a graphic novel version!), they are devoted readers. I, myself, have always been partial to Sense and Sensibility, but I confess I may have to give Jane Bites Back a try.
