Something of Interest, Perhaps, to Austen Fans

Hey-ho!  Haven't posted 'round these parts in ages, but I thought that I'd put out a reading recommendation for any faithful souls who still peek in here once in a while.  If you love, above even the romance, the "light touch . . . dry humour . . . [and] lucid, lambent style"* of Miss Austen, you will surely enjoy the satirical English village novels of E.F. Benson.  Start with Queen Lucia and enjoy from there.  Such a treat!

*From the introduction to the Everyman's Library Edition of Sanditon and Other Stories, edited and introduced by Peter Washington (Alfred A. Knopf, 1996)
