JANE FAIRFAX Jane Austen's Emma, through Another's Eyes, Aiken, Joan
2 Aiken, Joan JANE FAIRFAX Jane Austen's Emma, through Another's Eyes
St. Martin's 1991 0312058845 / 9780312058845 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
HC/DJ - VG+. Cover has slight edgewear, light soiling outer edge of pages. Pages clean and intact, , no markings, not price clipped. Publishers Weekly: "Once again Aiken ( Mansfield Revisited ) playfully recreates the fictional world of Jane Austen by appropriating her characters: Jane Fairfax is the friend and rival of the heroine of Emma . Here, headstrong, self-important Emma Woodhouse is pushed from center stage as the limelight falls on the childhood and maturation of her foil. Orphaned Jane is brought up by her shabby-genteel aunt and grandmother in Highbury, near the Woodhouse family estate. Jane joins Emma in her music lessons, where Jane's talent and diligence invite a jealousy in Emma, which is partly overcome after the death of her mother leaves a disconsolate Emma receptive to too-good-to-be-true Jane's sympathy. Then an old family friend whisks Jane off to London in order to educate her alongside his daughters, so that she might eventually support herself as a governess. A grown-up Jane returns to Highbury secretly engaged to Frank Churchill, whose aunt refuses to die and leave him the money and freedom to marry as he chooses. While Aiken lacks Austen's incomparable style and wit, her light, diverting novel captures the flavor, if not the substance, of Austen's milieu. " (400noto); 8vo

4 Atwood, Margaret DANCING GIRLS And Other Stories
Toronto Seal Books 1999 0770428290 / 9780770428297 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Very nice, clean, tight condition, no markings. Cover has a couple light creases and a little scuffing. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 256 pages; This splendid volume of short fiction testifies to Margaret Atwood's startlingly original voice, full of a rare intensity and exceptional intelligence. Each of the fourteen stories shimmers with feelings, each illuminates the interior landscape of a woman's mind. Here men and women still miscommunicate, still remain separate in different rooms. Different houses, or even different worlds. With brilliant flashes of fantasy, humor, and unexpected violence, the stories reveal the complexities of human relationships and bring to life characters who touch us deeply, evoking terror and laughter, compassion and recognition--and dramatically demonstrate why Margaret Atwood is one on the most important writers in English today.

6 Aylmer, Janet Julia and the Master of Morancourt A Novel
NY Harpercollins 2009 0061672955 / 9780061672958 First Edition Softcover New 
New book, small remainder marking bottom edge of pages. ; From the author of Darcy's Story comes a novel of romance, family tragedy, and intrigue in a volatile England at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Julia Maitland had an idyllic childhood with her brother and younger sisters on her family's estate in rural Derbyshire. Upon reaching marriageable age, she looked forward to everything that her new status could bring: the excitements of her first “season” in society, a choice of handsome suitors, and—hopefully—a blissful future with a man she cherishes. But Julia's prospects take a disastrous turn with the sudden and unbearably tragic death of her soldier brother in the war against Napoleon and the loss of her father's investments. Within the span of a few weeks, she finds herself in London, then fashionable Bath, and ultimately chasing smugglers through the countryside in coastal Dorset. Yet through all the drama and turmoil she keeps alive her hopes for happiness and a love passionate, powerful, and true. (190os, 10/12)

A Bajan high school drop-out, she subsists passively in her grandmother’s house at the sufferance of a stern, fundamentalist task-mistress, one who malignly sees in Lily her lost, promiscuous, “wutless” mother. Adrift, born into an “island paradise” which offers few choices to her kind, she must nevertheless identify, then gain the grit and spiritual wherewithal to make them, if she’s to escape an out-of-control life of serial beatings at the hands of her first “man, ” the charismatic, brutal, and finally murderous Goldie (Colvin) Edwards. Through the counsel of her appalled friend Sophie and the wisdoms of a pair of beach Rastas encountered beside her beloved Caribbean, she slowly learns not only that she is, indeed, a lovely flower, but The Rock she must leave via the freedom of primal yet navigable waters, has been the stumbling block set before an unloved female self. With a brilliant ear for both dialogue and dialect, and a great gift for ensemble scenes, Canadian-Bajan novelist Nicole Blades plants us firmly on the soil, not of the tourists’, but of the natives’ contemporary Caribbean.
