PD James Writes a Jane Austen Sequel

abstract:PD James has a bio to knock your socks off: The author of twenty books, most of which have been filmed and broadcast on television in the United States and other countries. She spent thirty years in various departments of the British Civil Service, including the Police and Criminal Law Department of Great Britain's Home Office. She has served as a magistrate and as a governor of the BBC. In 2000 she celebrated her eightieth birthday and published her autobiography, Time to Be in Earnest. The recipient of many prizes and honors, she was created Baroness James of Holland Park in 1991. She lives in London and Oxford. Random House

With her love of Jane Austen (she re-reads the entire canon every year) she has devised a mystery picking up 6 years after the marriage of Elizabeth Bennet to Mr. Knightly. Sound intriguing? Check out the interview (below) with the author and purchase copies of Death Comes to Pemberley(Random House 2010) for each JA fan on your holiday gift list.
