Reviews

"The letters in Heller's edition of Pride and Prejudice are painstakingly detailed, from the style of folding (letters didn't have envelopes, so they served as their own containers) to the postal markings and wax imprints indicating price, mileage, date, etc.... These letters, with the various character traits that their appearances indicate, can bring 21st-century readers closer to Austen's world." --Ted Scheinman, Smithsonian
"This exquisite book presents the novel's full text along with 19 letters 'handwritten' by Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, Caroline Bingley and others. Their notes, complete with appropriate postmarks, are dropped into pouches placed at just the right moments in the story. More than a gimmick, it's a dramatic way to experience the central role that correspondence plays in the novel." --The Washington Post Book Club
