Out tomorrow: A new take on Austen

emmaAlexander McCall Smith is back with the most recent in this series of updated versions of Austen’s classics. Here he takes on Emma with a view to setting it in the modern world, in Norfolk no less.

“I can’t wait to begin my encounter with these delicious characters. On which subject, I have great sympathy for Mr Woodhouse. The original felt very anxious about draughts; my Mr Woodhouse is extremely interested in vitamins.”

Reserve a copy today: the paperback is released on June 4th.
