Fortnightly Book, April 16

I was going to do Teresa of Avila, but I think I'll wait a few weeks for that. So instead we'll do Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, published anonymously in 1811. It was a success, but as Austen had to indemnify the publisher against losses, it cost her a pretty penny before she started making any money on it.

To do something a little different, if I have the time, I think I will watch the Tamil cinematic adaptation of S&S, Kandukondain Kandukondain, which is an adaptation of the novel I have certainly not yet seen; the Bollywood movie has Aishwarya Rai in it, so at least one part of it will be very watchable.
