I just listened to this wonderful interview on NPR with the author P. D. James about her new book written about the continuation of Jane Austen’s story of Pride and Prejudice.

The link above has both the audio and a printed transcript of the interview.

    I should have mentioned the title of the book! It is “Death Comes To Pemberley”.
    quote from the interview:
    In Death Comes to Pemberley, James dwells on the limited choices for women in the early 19th century. “Women were expected to marry, and if they didn’t marry, that was regarded as a failure,” James says. The only job they could hold was that of a governess — “a horrible job because you were neither a servant nor were you the family.”

    If you know a Jane Austen fan, this would make a great Christmas gift.
