Reader, I Married Him: Stories Inspired by Jane Eyre
Paperback - English

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 famous line in Charlotte Bronte's most beloved novel, Jane Eyre.

A fixture in the literary canon, Charlotte Bronte 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 19th-century Britain when few women wrote, and fewer were published, Bronte 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 famous line from Jane Eyre as a springboard for their own flights of imagination.
