Austen Sighting ~ Lee Child on Jane Austen

An interview with Lee Child in The New York Yimes Book Review:

What do you plan to read next?

My to-be-read pile is enormous, but winking ominously at me is Jane Austen’s “Emma.” I have never read Jane Austen — in my American wife’s eyes an incredible deficiency for an Englishman, matched only by the fact that I don’t really like Mozart. I hadn’t read “Jane Eyre” either, until she made me, and I’m glad I did, so I’ll get to “Emma” eventually — but perhaps not soon.

  1. “so I’ll get to “Emma” eventually — but perhaps not soon.”

    Jesus Christ, get on with it. You call yourself an Englishman? Where do you come from? I’ve worked in Surrey all my life , I can show you where “Emma” is!!!!
    If Emma is what you want to read get on with with it and get in touch with it emotionally!!

    All the best,
    Tony

    P Merry Christmas.
