Thanks for your review.

What did you think of Lady Susan?

Now that's a modern woman.


Isn't it just the best? Now you have to rent the slight but adorable ITV/Masterpiece adaptation from 2007. Andrew Davies co-wrote the screenplay and despite one or two small quibbles, it's a winner.

I've never read Lady Susan-- it's another one on the TBR pile!

And thanks for the movie tip, Sarah. I happen to have nabbed a copy of the BBC film of Northanger Abbey, which I plan on watching soon, but if the one you described is better, I'll definitely seek it out.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
