Book recommendation: “Love and Friendship” by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice, this ain’t. Jane Austen’s Love and Friendship and Other Early Works is a light-hearted, 120-page collection of the author’s early works — most of them short novels written in letter format. It is a gleeful romp through the literary and social mores of the time, irreverent, witty, tongue-in-cheek and immensely fun to read. Austen’s absurd plots had me laughing out loud and turning the pages eager for more. Highly recommended.
