Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? More Puzzles in Classic Fiction

by John Sutherland

Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? More Puzzles in Classic Fiction Synopsis

'Wonderful...concise, witty, effortlessly learned.' Sunday Times How does Magwitch swim to shore with a great iron on his leg? Where does Fanny Hill keep her contraceptives? Whose side is Hawkeye on? And how does Clarissa Dalloway get home so quickly? In this new edition sequel to the enormously successful Is Heathcliff a Murderer?, John Sutherland plays literary detective and investigates 32 literary conundrums, ranging from Daniel Defoe to Virginia Woolf. As in its universally loved predecessor, the questions and answers are ingenious and convincing, and return the reader with new respect to the great novels that inspire them.

Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? More Puzzles in Classic Fiction Press Reviews

'Sutherland is not simply a sleuth, but a sympathetic alternative author; less pedant, in fact, than poet' * Sunday Times *
