Publisher's Summary

Award-winning narrator and internationally acclaimed writer/comedienne, Alison Larkin brings her signature wit to this hugely entertaining audio production of Jane Austen's first novel, Northanger Abbey, followed by The History of England, a short, delightfully satirical piece that Austen wrote when she was just 15 years old.

In Northanger Abbey, Catherine Morland, a clergyman's daughter, longs for the kind of romantic adventures she has read about in her favorite Gothic novels. After spending a season mingling with fashionable high society in Bath, she is invited to stay at Northanger Abbey where nothing is what it seems.

In The History of England, the teenage Jane Austen pokes fun at the historians of the day who pretended to be objective when they clearly were not, and wrote about the kings and queens of England with less respect (and more wit) than a British newspaper.

    "Absolutely LOVED this sublime performance!"

    What a delight!

    Alison Larkin has done it again -- an outstanding performance with her usual wit and humor, as well as tremendous characterization, in this wonderful performance of Northanger Abbey!

    Just as Larkin introduced us to Jane Austen's little known poems in her narration of Persuasion, here she has included even more little-known Austen in the humorous and satirical "History of England. I loved listening to Jane Austen's "History of England"-- which was completely new to me, as it may be for many other Austen fans.

    "Northanger Abbey and the History of England" is a great addition in Larkin's growing collection of Jane Austen novels. I loved her narration of Pride & Prejudice (with songs from Regency England), Persuasion & Poems, and Emma, too!

    Definitely worth the listen whether it's your first time with Northanger Abbey or your 50th!
