Jane Austen Book Club
by Karen Joy Fowler
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(869)
Jocelyn ha passato i cinquanta, ma non smette di partorire un'idea bizzarra dietro l'altra. Sylvia, la sua migliore amica - si conoscono da quando avevano entrambe undici anni - le ha appena confessato che, dopo trentadue anni di matrimonio, suo marito le ha chiesto il divorzio. Trentadue anni di gioie e soddisfazioni svaniti improvvisamente nel nulla, ha detto singhiozzando. E Jocelyn che cosa ha fatto? Ha avuto la stramba idea di fondare un club del libro, il Jane Austen Book Club, poiché, ha detto citando Kipling, "non c'è niente di meglio di Jane quando sei nei pasticci".

"All the while it's Austen writing the really dangerous books. [...] Books that people really do believe, even hundreds of years later. How virtue will be recognised and rewarded. How love will prevail. How life is a romance."
