Jane Austen Pride and Promiscuity: The Lost Sex Scenes of Jane Austen
by Arielle Eckstut

Hidden by Jane Austen's younger sister, the material which makes up this book throws an entirely new light on all of Austen's work, making explicit the latent and repressed sexuality that underlies much of her fiction. The discovery also forces new assessments of Austen herself. Along with the sex scenes were found letters to her editor and her sister arguing and anguishing over the extensive cuts shewas asked to make for her novels to be seen as decent and acceptable to the public.

Published for the first time, these missing pages are sure to astonish and delight all Austen devotees.
