Praise for Jane Austen in Scarsdale
"For every frazzled student applying to college, for all anxious parents trying to get a student into college, for all teachers besieged by requests for higher grades and glowing letters of recommendation, this book is for you. I am persuaded that Cohen, like Jane Austen, knows how to work things out for her heroine--neatly and satisfactorily. I loved it."
---Ann B. Ross, author of MISS JULIA'S SCHOOL OF BEAUTY
"Paula Marantz Cohen has done it again! Jane Austen in Scarsdale is laugh-out-loud funny, literate, wise--and best of all, a satirical mirror of our times. She has become our own Jane Austen."
---Diane Ravitch, author of THE LANGUAGE POLICE
Acclaim for the Previous Novels of Paula Marantz Cohen
MUCH ADO ABOUT JESSIE KAPLAN
"A brightly comic book…[that explores] the redemptive capacity of the literary imagination…Highly literate light fiction."
---Times Literary Supplement
"Unabashedly entertaining reading…touching and not a little wise."
---The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A comic tour-de-force…as fresh and pungent as an apple cake [that] proves that literary fiction doesn't have to be elegiac in tone to be successful."
---The Hudson Review
JANE AUSTEN IN BOCA
"Utterly charming…think Pride and Prejudice, but with better weather."
"Page-turner of the week… Austen never schmoozed by the pool with a pack of bronzed yentas, but her Pride plot proves as durable as ever…in this witty romp."
"Clever, warmhearted…Cohen's wit is sharp, smart, and satirical, and her characterizations are vividly on target."
---The San Francisco Chronicle
"While the novel works as a clever remake of Pride and Prejudice, it has equal merit as contemporary social commentary."
---Persuasions: The Jane Austen Journal
