Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field by Melissa Nathan

Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field

Melissa Nathan

An updated version of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'. This city girl novel stands on its own but it's even more fun if you read the original too.

Extract

Jazz marvelled that these people who had unwittingly been kept in a stuffy enclosed (Tube)space for fifteen minutes so that one man could get out faster and easier than them, could make such fools of themselves. He's just a man, thought Jazz. A man who has to go to the toilet like them, who gets headaches, verrucas and wind.
