Description

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice has now been entirely retold in texts and emojis, in Emoji Pride and Prejudice. See how this classic plays out in modern discourse!

High society and romance are the hallmarks of this classic story. But what would happen if the characters of Pride and Prejudice texted each other non-stop rather than engaging in their melodrama directly? Would Elizabeth call Mr. Darcy a poop emoji? Would Darcy drink and dial and accidentally reveal his true feelings complete with a heart emoji?

In this laugh out loud re-telling of Jane Austen's famous work, you'll get a condensed, modern interpretation of the world's greatest love story... all told with everyone's favorite emojis and the now ubiquitous text bubbles. Featuring hundreds of classic and some brand new emojis, along with a removable poster (featuring all the emojis), Emoji Pride and Prejudice is the perfect gift for the Austen lover. Or anyone that can't seem to get off their phone, of course.

The author

Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector, and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, at age forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously during her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously.

Katherine Furman has written and edited a wide range of books, many of which reimagine classic texts. She loves to read English literature in the summer, Russian masterworks in the winter, and binge watch Netflix throughout the year. She lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, with her husband and probably too many toy dinosaurs.

Chuck Gonzales works in both the adult and children's sectors, creating characters, scenes, and masterful likenesses for books, advertising, animation, and editorial markets... always with at least a hint of humor. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Nickelodeon, and more. Chuck designed countless characters for Disney and Nickelodeon and wrote and illustrated a graphic novel for Scholastic's reading series, Oscar the Mighty. He lives and works in Providence, RI.
