Top ten books for "Pride and Prejudice" fans

Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel is Eligible, a reimagining of Pride and Prejudice. One of her ten books every Pride and Prejudice fan must read, as shared at the B & N Reads blog:
Stiltsville, by Susanna Daniel

While taking place in a completely different time and place from Pride and Prejudice (late 20th-century Miami), I’d argue Daniel picks up where Austen left off, which is after the wedding vows have been exchanged. Stiltsville follows a marriage over many decades, from start to finish, and it’s incredibly wise, compassionate, and moving.
