Becoming a Better Jane
Literary Makeovers was first formed according to one guiding principal: that Jane Austen could use some freaking help. That's one reason we're delighted with these new books: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. Because not only did Jane Austen desperately need a makeover, her work did, too! I mean, have you ever read it? We haven't. But these two books totally look like improvements. Nobody wants to read about a bunch of English people sitting around drinking tea and listening to Oasis or whatever. But when you add monsters--that's a story!
We salute the geniuses behind these spooktacular Austen makeovers. We've also come up with a few ideas of our own, using things that terrify us--just in time for Halloween!
