Probably not much of a surprise, but author Sophie Kinsella says she “adores” Jane Austen. (The article is in French, but even someone with the Editrix’s negligible language skills can figure out what “J’adore Jane Austen” means.) Thanks to Alert Janeite Paola, who keeps us abreast of the francophone Jane Austen news!
Speaking of, Paola also found a play that was staged last month, “Les Trois Vies de Jane Austen” (The Three Lives of Jane Austen), “Celle qu’elle a vécue, celle qu’elle a rêvée, celle qu’elle a écrite” (that she lived, that she dreamed, that she wrote). The French Miss Austen Regrets, perhaps?
