Mr Darcy’s Guide to Courtship
The Secrets of Seduction from Jane Austen’s
Most Eligible Bachelor
by Fitzwilliam Darcy as told to Emily Brand
Invites readers into...this faux dating—er, courtship—guide...Reveals attitudes typical of his particular time and place...many subtle, funny anachronisms...[Darcy] advises potential suitors to “be tall” or, if this is impossible, “invest in a monstrous tall hat,” and in typical Darcian bluntness, “ensure that you are not utterly disgusting to behold.”...A delightful job recreating Darcy at his most cranky, aloof and—yes—charming.”
                                Publishers Weekly
“Pitch-perfect ability to capture the stodgy—and, of course, prideful and prejudiced—voice of one Mr. Darcy...makes this tongue-in-cheek
dating guide so utterly and delightfully amusing...This book is sure to have Austen/P&P/Darcy fans swooning.”
