BBC Radio 4 is presenting a five-part series that is a dramatization of Lindsay Ashford’s The Mysterious Death of Jane Austen. I remember how ruefully I greeted this book when it was published in 2011 but time has softened my reaction. After all, I am not a vampire, werewolf, space alien or zombie and that is something to be proud of in this day and age.
It is free to listen to for seven days as of even date (24 February 2014). You might also enjoy a three-part dramatization of Pride and Prejudice, but have only six days hence to listen. Both these offerings are abridged dramatizations.
