-- Pembury Publishing has now made Margaret Bowker's new arts novel available and Janeites and followers of Jane Austen will be able to download it for enjoyment and critique at a very small cost. This arts group supports Margaret's writing and gets this type of literature around the world, a challenge she took up about a decade ago. Enjoy the characters, love stories, disappointments, inequality and transformed lives in the text. A picture is worth a thousand words they say and a thousand words can create many pictures. 'It is a very old debate:the relationship between word and image', says Colin Thubron in the latest RSL Review. Felicity Redding, the book's beauty, utterly defeats Amelia Hardy in looks, but how will she look to you? What is your idea of beauty and is it just of the body? Or which will you prefer, passionate immediate love, or one that burns more slowly and is shown in actions rather than words? Both are in the book and others too. And Prior Street is written from a male viewpoint, a change from Austen's great work, but see if you like it. So there is a lot to consider and the price to begin the journey is less than a cup of coffee. Enjoy!
