A fascinating, humorous, and timeless coming-of-age tale featuring one of Jane Austen's most memorable characters.“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition…had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.” The celebrated opening of Jane Austen’s Emma introduces readers to a supremely self-assured young woman who believes herself immune to romance. By turns brilliant and foolish, self-aware and self-deluding, Emma “leaps from error to error,” writes Margaret Drabble in her incisive Introduction, wreaking comic havoc in the lives of those around her with well-meant and ill-fated attempts at matchmaking. . The mature flowering of Austen’s singular and prolific genius, Emma is a fascinating, hilarious, and timeless coming-of-age tale—the compelling story of a woman seeking her true nature and finding true love in the process.. With an Introduction by Margaret Drabbleand an Afterword by Sabrina Jeffries
