“When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before” — Cliff Fadiman

From: Sims Reed - Rare Books
Here's to a blissful summer of reading for all you Jane Austen fans. Her lesser-known works are waiting to be discovered — or rediscovered.
"The heroine of Northanger Abbey is not so popular, maybe because the title is hard to pronounce, maybe because the novel wasn't re-made for television until 2007, but probably because Catherine Morland doesn't have much in the way of an identity. The narrator writes that no one would take her for a heroine  and then throws a hero in her path and makes her one."
—Rachel M. Brownstein, author of Why Jane Austen?
