So, I read the first chapter and thought to myself that I could sense the wicked wit of Austen but in a more modern setting, published as this novel was a century later (in 1932). Then, on the very first page of second chapter, I found this. Her mentioning my favourite work of Miss Austen as well. The work that made me fall in love with her writing. I was giddy like a little child and simply had to come on here to share.
