Terry Baker, a prolific reader and reviewer of lesbian fiction, as well as someone who has been very supportive of my own books in the past, was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule and talk about Gay Pride & Prejudice on her reviews page at Affinity Press.
Here’s an excerpt:
This is a wonderfully refreshing and cleverly written new take on a much loved classic. I think Kate chose exactly the right characters to write in as gay. She didn’t make the story all about the gay characters, which simply wouldn’t have sounded right. The dialogue is written in the style of the time the original book was written.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even though I’ve never been too fond of reading the classics, I much prefer the film versions… I would love to see this version of Pride and Prejudice made in to a film or even a TV drama.
I told Terry that I thoroughly agree that it would be wonderful to see the queer film version of Pride and Prejudice–particularly if Keira Knightley could be convinced to reprise her role as Elizabeth! But who to play her love interest, Caroline Bingley?
Any suggestions? Let me know…
