Love & Friendship Book Cover Whit Stillman Lady Susan Jane Austen

“A postmodern confection [that’s] very, very funny.”―Penelope Green, New York Times

“In the ever-booming Austen spinoff industry, where paeans to Mr. Darcy are the norm, rewriting a work of the master’s in the guise of one of her detractors makes for an eccentrically cheeky tribute.”―Alexandra Schwartz, New Yorker

“A merry comedy of pride, prejudice, and duplicity…. Silly, sly, eccentric characters and brisk chatter make for a diverting romp.”―Kirkus Reviews

“Lady Susan is finally getting some long overdue respect.”―Alexandra Alter, New York Times

“Witty and delightful.”―BookPage

“Both quirky and hilarious.”―Publishers Weekly

“Lady Susan remains deliciously wicked.”―Julia Felsenthal, Vogue

“Stillman worships Austen and [the book and film] show a deep familiarity with her life, work, and times.”―Laura Miller, Slate

“Stillman has a fine eye for social niceties.”―Library Journal, Editor’s Pick

“Both movie and book are much funnier than they sound in a brief description.”―Scott Timberg, Salon
