Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. It's the Austen least likely to make you swoon (did I just use the word 'swoon'?! I really have been reading too many classics lately!), but in many ways I think Lady Susan features Jane Austen at her most purely clever, sharp and satirical. As others have noted, the book takes place entirely in the form of letters that various characters exchange, but rest assured that there's still a lot of Austen's trademark dialogue rather than just summaries of various events.

This epistolary novel, an early complete work that the author never submitted for publication, describes the schemes of the main character-the widowed Lady Susan-as she seeks a new husband for herself, and one for her daughter. Although the theme, together with the focus on character study and moral issues, is close to Austen's published work (Sense and Sensibility was also originally written in the epistolary form), its outlook is very different, and the heroine has few parallels in 19th-century literature.
Jane Austen has long been one of my favourite authors, ever since I read my mother's copy of Pride and Prejudice and since then I have re-read it several times and her other full length novels too. But I've never read Lady Susan, The Watsons and Sanditon before. But I’ve never read Lady Susan, The Watsons and Sanditon before. In fact it was only reading Carol Shields’ biography of Jane Austen quite some years ago now that I discovered that she had written these books, none of which were published in her lifetime. Lady Susan is a finished novella, whereas The Watsons and Sanditon are two unfinished fragments. The full text of Sanditon wasn’t published until 1925.
