When the books I've been reading haven't been bringing me joy, I reread Jane Austen. This time through, I skipped the usual ending and read the original--brief and rough, granted, but possibly more true to Austen's usual vision of things, as it leaves out


the scene during which Wentworth writes an unlikely letter about his long-standing love. Come on now, we all know what sailors do when they're in port.
