Summary

Karen is a CHP mainstay and her fans will be excited for this departure from her novels. However, Karen retains her signature wit, humor, and snappy writing she’s so well-known for.

This collection has wide appeal, not only because of the Jane Austen aspect, but because it’s a completely fresh take on the genre. These stories really examine what it means for something to be a classic and who gets to decide. It’s a uniquely American take on the issue, too.

Karen is lively, funny, and a joy to work with. Recently retired, she has more time for events now and we hope to do some interesting tie ins with the “Janeite” community.

This book has strong potential to tap into the widespread audience for literary fiction. (It’s a bit like George Saunders meets James Tate.) Stories have appeared in a number of popular and literary magazines, including Harper’s, Sentence, and Triquarterly. Ruefle was featured in the McSweeney’s Book of Poets Picking Poets; this book is a good opportunity to expand Mary’s readership to fans of flash fiction and McSweeney’s readers. Her poetry collections are very popular in libraries and bookstores with an academic connection. Ruefle teaches at the Univeristy of Iowa and the University of Vermont.
