Sultry Climates, Paperback (March 2003)
The shadow history of traveling-for erotic fulfillment: "Sex, history, literature, insight, and laughs. A can't-miss package deal. Are continental breakfasts included?"-Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer.
Pride and Prejudice, Paperback (May 1992)
The garrulous and empty-headed Mrs Bennet has only one aim - that of finding a good match for each of her five daughters. In this, she is mocked by her cynical and indolent husband. This is an ironic novel of manners.
Mansfield Park, Paperback (May 1992)» View all books by Ian Littlewood
Adultery is not a typical Jane Austen theme, but when it disturbs the relatively peaceful household at Mansfield Park, it has quite unexpected results. The heroine, Fanny Price, has to struggle to cope with the results, re-examining her feelings while enduring the amorality, old-fashioned indifference and priggish disapproval of those around her.
