Description - Lady Susan by Jane Austen
Glittering with Austen's subversive young imagination, this wickedearly novella features a devious, adulterous anti-heroine.
'Of what a mistake were you guilty in marrying a Man of his age! - just old enough to be formal, ungovernable and to have the Gout - too old to be agreable, and too young to die.'
The scheming and unscrupulous Lady Susan is unlike any Austen heroine you've met in this fascinating early novella.

Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries - including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.
