I love Jane Austen but not for the reasons one would think. As a male I have zero interest in the story lines. I don’t give a damn what happens to the Bennet sisters,get them to a nunnery for all I care but I find Austen one of the very few novelists one can read at random. Pick a page, pick a paragraph; magnificent prose all.Perhaps if I had paid more attention to the stories, I would have learned this and given a damn if I were a woman.
