Summary
This collection of original stories by today's finest women writers--including Tracy Chevalier, Francine Prose, Elizabeth McCracken, Tessa Hadley, Audrey Niffenegger, and more--takes inspiration from the opening line in Charlotte Bronté's most beloved novel, Jane Eyre. A fixture in the literary canon, Charlotte Bronté is revered by readers all over the world. Her novels featuring unforgettable, strong heroines still resonate with millions today. And who could forget one of literature's best-known lines: "Reader, I married him" from her classic novel Jane Eyre? Part of a remarkable family that produced three acclaimed female writers at a time in nineteenth-century Britain when few women wrote, and fewer were published, Bronté has become a great source of inspiration to writers, especially women, ever since. Now in Reader, I Married Him, twenty of today's most celebrated women authors have spun original stories, using the opening line from Jane Eyre as a springboard for their own flights of imagination. Reader, I Married Him will feature stories by:Audrey NiffeneggerElif ShafakElizabeth McCrackenEmma DonoghueEsther FreudEvie WyldFrancine ProseHelen DunmoreJane GardamJoanna BriscoeLinda GrantLionel ShriverNadifa Mohamed Patricia ParkRoxane GaySalley VickersSarah HallSusan HillTessa HadleyNamwali SerpellKirsty GunnUnique, inventive, and poignant, the stories in Reader, I Married Him pay homage to the literary genius of Charlotte Bronté, and demonstrate once again that her extraordinary vision continues to inspire readers and writers
