What if the greatest characters in literary history all carried around smartphones and typed out messages to each other? From the passive-aggressive to the clever, the strange, and the downright inappropriate, magnificent Mallory Ortberg gets to grips with the literary assholes we love to hate.
Mallory Ortberg presents...
Texts from Jane Eyre is a whimsical collection of sharp, satirical and side-splittingly funny text message conversations from your favourite literary characters. Of course if Scarlett O'Hara had an unlimited data plan, she'd be sexting Ashley Wilkes at all hours; and if Mr Rochester could text Jane Eyre, his ARDENT MISSIVES would be in ALL-CAPS; and Daisy Buchanan would text you from behind the wheel - and then text you to come pick her up after the car crash.
Texts from Jane Eyre is a witty, original and very clever kind of mashup that brings your favourite authors and literary characters right into the twenty-first century.
