200 years since Jane Austen completed her last novel, Alison Larkin, a witty and always original voice, brings Persuasion and a selection of lesser known poems by Jane Austen to a new audience.

Persuasion

Seven years after Anne Elliot rejects the man she loves after a family friend persuades her that he isn't a good enough match for her, Frederick Wentworth returns to England looking for a wife.

Poems

Austen did not take herself seriously as a poet but she did write delightful, mostly comic verses to entertain family and friends.

Selected and introduced by award winning narrator Alison Larkin, the poems range from lines found on a piece of paper inside a tiny bag Austen gave to her niece in 1792, to her very last piece of writing—"When Winchester Races"—written three days before she died in July 1817.

"Raised in England by adoptive parents, Alison Larkin was actually born in America. She herself is a comic writer and performer—and she approaches Austen as a satirist—she has genuine theatrical skill... sustained comic creations. The voice reveals all." — The New Yorker
