I'm excited to share this piece I published in The Atlantic, reflecting on the 20th anniversary of Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility (1995/6) and Emma Thompson's Oscar-winning screenplay. Hugh Grant's Edward Ferrars and Alan Rickman's Colonel Brandon changed Austen adaptation history. (Step aside for a moment, Colin Firth.)
English professors don't often get to be on live television! So grateful for the chance to talk Jane Austen and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies on Arizona Midday (NBC 12 Phoenix).
Well, this has been a strange, fun, fantastic, and absolutely zombie-filled week. I had a chance to weigh in as the (alas, temporary!) resident Jane Austen expert in Entertainment Weekly, in "Ultimate Fan Face-Off: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" Thanks to zombie expert @ClarkCollis for the chance to mix it up, laugh, and learn a few things, too.
