Editorial Reviews

Review


'I've been reading LYDIA while having my chemo this afternoon. I laughed out loud. Several times - while HAVING CHEMO!!! It's brilliant. Such a clever idea and so engagingly written. This could be a really big book.' Linda Gillard, author of kindle best-seller 'House of Silence'

'I was alternately laughing out loud and gasping at the sheer, bold brilliance of it. I loved it for its irreverence, its humour, its intelligence and its energy. Prepare to be amused, entertained, and dazzled. A very good read indeed.' Catherine Czerkawska, award-winning novelist and playwright for stage and BBC Radio 4.

'It's actually really, really funny. ... It's got a clever literary game going on, and it's more than just updating it to teenspeak... there's something almost steampunky going on here... See for yourself!' Paul Magrs, novelist (including Dr Who novels)

From the Author

I've loved and reread the books of Jane Austen for as long as I can recall - I reread them every year. Every time I find something new! As my life changes, I notice different things, I suppose that's true for all of us - we take our own baggage on our reading journeys. I'd begun to notice how like a modern teenager Lydia Bennet is, as Austen writes her, but she's seen as if from the viewpoint of her much older sister Lizzy who of course has forgotten being a teenager! and finds her annoying. I began to feel more and more that Lydia gets a rough deal in Pride and Prejudice. My own daughter is called Lydia so I suppose I identify with her even more for that reason! Anyway, I had no intention of writing a comedy novel, I was already writing poetry and crime fiction and plays and creating sci-art installations... then suddenly one day, it just popped into my head - 'Lydia Bennet's Blog' - just like that. And I had to write it. She needed to be heard! I enjoyed writing it and changing all the plot points of P&P! We know that Regency people had their own slang as we do, I imagined what if their teens used the same slang terms as ours but for different reasons? This novel is the result.
