    Ostensibly written by Lady Susan Vernon s nephew by marriage in 1858, this is an attempt to vindicate Lady Susan, who, in the original novella, is the most awful mother and an accomplished flirt The nephew claims that anonymous spinster maligned his aunt by making up certain situations and dialogues He attempts to remedy that with his own memories and fails The dialogue is terrible It s stilted and unnatural but in the movie, it s funny The actors can pull it off and make it seem funny T Ostensibly written by Lady S...

    A Delightful Gem With Austen s Flair for Wit and CharmI bowled over laughing after reading every sentence written in this outstanding Austen re creation Whit Stillman is at his very best comical self with Love and Friendship, and I can very well imagine his book being applauded the world over for its ingenious and sparkling humor Lady Susan Vernon is not vindicated at all, and therein lies the intelligent irony of this novel Austen would be very proud This book is a must read for everyone wh A Del...
