Jo Baker pens a new adaptation of ‘Pride and Prejudice’
New York: Jane Austen classic ‘Pride and Prejudice’ may be one of the best books of all time, but hasn’t quite had the ‘fan fiction’ presence that the modern Harry Potter or Twilight series have had. Until now, that is.
British writer Jo Baker has re-written the Austen novel from the servant’s point of view, adding an element of novelty to an immensely popular story.
The book, called ‘Longbourn’, is expected to hit the bookshelves later this year and even the film rights have already been purchased with Random House and Focus Features picking up the tabs.
Lancashire-born Baker has already written other books such as ‘Offcomer’ and ‘The Mermaid’s Child’.
