Then & Now

THEN:
Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen
Without this story, would women still find Colin Firth attractive? There’s a thrill to “Will they? Won’t they?” romances, and throughout literature, few have been as enduring and engaging as Jane Austen’s strong-willed, intelligent Elizabeth Bennett and the handsome, brooding Mr. Darcy. Stories like this don’t last more than two centuries without good reason.

NOW:
Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day
(Revised Edition) by Winifred Watson
Originally published in 1937, reissued in 2000 in the UK and now adapted into a successful movie starring Frances McDormand, it is no mere coincidence that this book has received so much attention. Despite its years, it is a perfect love story, perfectly funny and perfectly transporting. Simply put: sheer perfection.
