The sex scenes Eckstut and Ashton have written - strange as it may sound - fit perfectly into the texts.
The sex scenes Eckstut and Ashton have written - strange as it may sound - fit perfectly into the texts. Reading (in bed) I think, "Yes, this IS the exact situation that would turn-on that character! That's exactly how she or he would act!" For example, in her sex scene with Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet is portayed as the feminist I know and love. Austen would have loved this witty and bawdy romp through her own novels. For those of you who read any of Austen's novels and wished the characters would just get over it (and get it on!), here's your very own release.
Pride and Promiscuity book. I don’t recommend Pride and Promiscuity. The premise is shaky and doesn’t hold up and worst of all, it’s just not funny. Eckstut and Ashton often quote preceding text from the novel (the actual novel) in italics, then insert the discovered sex scene where fictitious Austen scholars decided it was cut. Sometimes this works, but often it does not. The premise of this joke does not work.
Arielle Eckstut, Dennis Ashton. In a pitch-perfect literary parody, Arielle Eckstut and David Auburn claim to have stumbled upon lost manuscript pages from Jane Austen's novels, along with shocking letters to her sister and publisher. The 'excerpts' take readers behind closed doors to behold some very naughty goings-on among the characters of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma and all of Austen's novels.
John Mullan on a new view of Austen in Arielle Eckstut's Pride and Promiscuity. So when Arielle Eckstut brings her ready imagination to conjuring the sex scenes that Austen was not able to provide, she can write as if this were homage rather than desecration
John Mullan on a new view of Austen in Arielle Eckstut's Pride and Promiscuity. So when Arielle Eckstut brings her ready imagination to conjuring the sex scenes that Austen was not able to provide, she can write as if this were homage rather than desecration. Eckstut, a literary agent from California who has, according to her press release, "written numerous articles about sex", proclaims herself an Austen devotee. In her gamely facetious Preface she pictures herself visiting a manor house in which the blessed Jane's sister Cassandra once stayed.
In 1999, two amateur Jane Austen scholars staying at an English estate stumbled upon a hidden cache of manuscript pages and made the literary discovery of the century - the lost sex scenes from Jane Austens novels. Published here for the first time, the lost pages display Emma taking self-satisfaction to a whole new level, and reveal Henry Crawfords thorough exploration of "brotherly love" at Mansfield Park.

In 2002, an amateur Jane Austen scholar, while staying at a Hertfordshire estate, stumbled upon a hidden cache of manuscript pages and made an extraordinary literary discovery - lost scenes from Jane Austen's novels that reveal an altogether different dimension to her oeuvre. Pride and Prejudice's Bingley sisters appear as Sapphic seductresses; Mansfield Park's incest subtext becomes manifest; and Darcy gets more than his shirt wet. This incisive parody of academic study is sure to astonish and delight mischievous Austenites.
