Brown, Robin:

Shark Infested Custard : The Golden Age of British Televsion - First edition

1913, ISBN: 0297810723

Hardcover, ID: 252537958

Synopsis:In early nineteenth-century England, a spirited young woman copes with the suit of a snobbish gentleman as well as the romantic entanglements of her four sisters. Includes explanatory notes throughout the text, an introduction discussing the author and the background of the story, and a study guide.Publisher's Notes:First Line: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."Industry Reviews:"Arrange the great English novelists as one will, it does not seem possible to bring them out in any order where she is not the first, or second or third, whoever her companions may be....A little aloof, a little inscrutable and mysterious, she will always remain, but serene and beautiful also because of her greatness as an artist."Times Literary Supplement - Virginia Woolf (05/08/1913)"Five charming sisters on the gayest, merriest manhunt that ever snared a bewildered bachelor! Girls! Take a lesson from these husband hunters!"MGM promotion of the 1940 film of the novel"She thought an unattached young woman with intelligence...was the most marvelous creature in the world...What must have made this type so appealing to her, of course, was that this was the only time in their lives in which women like that had an absolute power--if only the power to withhold themselves--over the desires of a man. Austen felt keenly the fragility of the circumstance...This is what makes the scene of Darcy's first proposal so potent: Elizabeth will never experience again so fine an emotional surge as she does when she spurns him. It is the one context in which she is permitted to say exactly what she feels."New York Review of Books - Louis Menand (02/01/1996)"This writer of marriage stories...had a mind as interesting as any novelist who has ever lived. In Jane Austen, the mating game assumes dimensions that Boccaccio ignored--the joining of understanding and temperament, property and taste, as well as body and body. If marriage had become the central rite of the new materialist society of Austen's England, it was also the central trial of an individual's worth, which...became the test of his or her ability to perceive and to know.""Great Books" - David Denby"Women, we gather, are seldom artists, because they have a passion for detail which conflicts with the proper artistic proportion of their work. We would cite Sappho and Jane Austen as examples of two great women who combine exquisite detail with a supreme sense of artistic proportion."Virginia Woolf"The work [i.e. 'Pride and Prejudice'] is rather too light, and bright, and sparkling; it wants shade; it wants to be stretched out here and there with a long chapter of sense, if it could be had; if not, of solemn specious nonsense, about something unconnected with the story; an essay on writing, a critique on Walter Scott, or the history of Buonaparte, on anything that would form a contrast, and bring the reader with increased delight to the playfulness and epigrammatism of the general style."Jane Austen.Size Height: 8.3 in Width: 5.3 in Thickness: 0.8 in Weight: 11.2 oz   , Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1956, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, hardcover, 1st edition, 1990.
