Sansei and Sensibility
Publisher: Coffee House Press
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.
