In Search of …

Having recently read (truthfully, re-read) two of Jane Auston’s novels, I find myself spoiled, unable to become engaged by anything less intimate, charming and gentle.

Where are the modern writers whose prose can be so engaging, emotionally satisfying and intelligent?

  1. hi ilegirl,

    havent read anything by Jane Austen, but i understand and agree with the sentiment. may i recommend Orhan Pamuk’s ‘ My Name Is Read’ which is essentially a thriller but a very charming portrayal of medievel Turkey.

    cheers!
