…and on and on. Which is what I wrote about in my latest Between the Lines column for the Presidio Sentinel after reading P.D. James’ Death Comes to Pemberley. The Jane mania has resulted in a fair share of silliness, but it’s also gotten people talking about and reading Jane Austen. The examples I provide are just a smattering of what’s come along in recent years.

The Virginia Woolf fascination continues as well, although I think a lot of people find Woolf’s own work more intimidating. But we’ve come a long way from when she was thought to be the character played by Elizabeth Taylor in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.”
