Our son read Northanger Abbey in THREE different undergraduate courses at college. By the third time I decided that either he or the school needed to broaden their horizons just a bit….

That one was good. Hereabouts, I hear the title pronounced as /nôrth’ān-jur and /nôrth’-ang-gur/. I’m curious how you pronounce it, CG.

But when I taught film studies for a couple of semesters, I got a complimentary poster of Jayne Mansfield. That was my Mansfield perk.

I took a seminar on her when I was working on my Ph.D. Emma was on the reading list for the Comprehensive exams.

Persuasion was good. Mansfield Park is what the Devil reads out loud in Hell when he is sodomizing pedophiles.

Also, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is impressively faithful to the original. Funnier, but a little less accurate than Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters…
