GET READY FOR 2015: Read Jane Austen’s early (and wicked) epistolary novella, Lady Susan. Available in a beautiful edition from the Juvenilia Press—as well as a terrific adaptation by (our own) Leo Rockas from America Star Books. Lady Susan is also available in public domain texts online (free) for electronic readers.
