"In some ways I wish I weren't familiar with the original so I could have this gay version ingrained in my head instead. Gay Pride and Prejudice
has a clever and satisfying conclusion, and I found it a thoroughly enjoyable twist on a favourite book of mine. In fact when I feel the need to re-read Pride and Prejudice
again, I might just read Kate's version." - When Sally Met Sally
"It's clear that Christie worked to keep as much of Austen's original language and while this edition does require a bit more exposition, the prose still retains Austen's sparkling lightness. Christie also does a wonderful job of letting the reader in on the joke while still giving them plenty to wonder about. Gay Pride and Prejudice
is great fun to read and I've already told all my friends to read it twice." - The Lesbrary blog
About the Author
Kate Christie, a longtime Jane Austen fan, admits to being weary of the compulsive heteronormativity of the classics. After reading an article describing the literary mashup phenomenon surrounding Austen and others, Christie decided to try her hand at queering the canon, starting with Austen's mother of all romance novels. The author of three previous traditionally published novels, Christie lives with her wife and daughter near Seattle.
