Dancing with Mr. Darcy :  Stories Inspired by Jane Austen and Chawton House Library

   
Author: Sarah Waters 

 

Traumatized by her parents’ decision to give up the rectory in Hampshire where she grew up, Jane Austen had been unable to write for ten years. It was only when her brother Edward offered her a permanent home in this Chawton House estate that she had the peace and security to pick up her pen again. Dancing with Mr. Darcy  is an anthology of winning entries in the “Jane Austen Short Story Award 2009,” which celebrates the bicentenary of Austen’s arrival in the village of Chawton, where she spent the most productive years of her literary life, compiled by bestselling author Sarah Waters. In addition to featuring the winning piece of fiction and nineteen other stories, this anthology contains introductions from Waters, as well as from author Rebecca Smith, the great-great-great-great-great niece of Jane Austen.
