In this slender little book are what appear to be the “naughty bits” left out of Austen’s witty little novels. Capturing Austen’s style impeccably, Ms. Eckstut has “found” hilarious, absurd and absolutely smutty bits that were supposedly left on the editing floor. For those who wished that Austen had put a little sex into her stories, here is one writer’s imaginative take on the subject. While I didn’t care for all the sexual vignettes (Charlotte of “Sense and Sensibility” remains gratingly annoying even in the throes of ecstasy), I found a few amusing in their ribald conceit.
