Top 5 Austen-inspired Nonfiction Book of the Year - Austenprose.com
Inspired by the works of Jane Austen, the amusingly tongue-in-cheek Mr Darcy's Guide to Courtship is written from the perspective of Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy and closely based on real Regency advice manuals. It is a hilarious and irreverent picture of the social mores of the period and of how men thought about women - and sheds amusing light on men of the modern age, too! Readers can dip into different sections for Darcy's views on a myriad of issues, including "What Females Want," "The Deceptions of Beautiful Women" and "Winning Their Affections, Flattery, Making Conversation, and Flirting!" Also included are sections written by Pride and Prejudice's Miss Caroline Bingley and Mr Darcy's correspondence with famous Regency figures including the Duke of Wellington.
