Following the runaway success of her stunning rendition of Pride and Prejudice, award-winning narrator Alison Larkin returns—breathing new life into Jane Austen’s Emma. Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the book, Larkin —a witty and always original voice— is the perfect vessel to bring this great classic to a new audience in a FUN and accessible way.
”I understood what Larkin was doing. Raised in England by adoptive parents, Alison Larkin was actually born in America. She herself is a comic writer and performer - and she approaches Austen as a satirist - she has genuine theatrical skill, so her Mrs. Elton, swooping and dipping in flights of arrogant self-serving nonsensical observation, and her Miss Bates, anxious and desperately self-conscious even as she talks without end, are both sustained comic creations. The voice reveals all." David Denby, THE NEW YORKER
