內容簡介

看天才女作家Curtis Sittenfeld 繼《我在貴族學校的日子》、《我當第一夫人的日子》之後,如何改寫《傲慢與偏見》。

「即便是死忠的奧斯汀迷,也會被這本小說給吸引。」
--《O - 歐普拉雜誌》(O - The Oprah Magazine)

Bennet家的Liz,已經30好幾,在紐約的雜誌社工作。她的大姊Jane,是個瑜珈老師。因為父親心臟病突發,兩個人不得不回到辛辛那提郊區的家裡。她們不僅要阻止母親老是給父親吃牛排,還得整理那個亂七八糟的都鐸式風格的家。最小的兩個妹妹Kitty 與Lydia忙著以交叉健身法(CrossFit)和原始人飲食法(Paleo diets)來瘦身,以便找到工作。老三Mary正在修她第三個線上課程碩士,除了周二晚上神秘的外出,她幾乎沒離開過房間。Bennet太太老想著如何把女兒給嫁掉,特別是Jane的40歲生日快到了!

Chip Bingley,一個剛搬到辛辛那提的迷人醫生,最近出現在電視實境秀《適婚男女》(Eligible)的節目中。在國慶日的烤肉宴上,驚艷於Jane的美麗。而他的朋友Fitzwilliam Darcy,則是一個高傲的神經外科醫師,受夠了辛辛那提與當地居民,對Liz老是投以懷疑的眼神。Liz被父親堆積如山的醫療帳單搞得身心俱疲,還得分心處理妹妹們脫序行為所搞出來的問題,而且還要想辦法避開老是覬覦她的Willie表哥,但是這一切都不能阻止愛苗的滋長...。

《紐約時報》暢銷書,Eligible這本小說既溫柔又有趣。它處理了性別、階級、求愛與家庭的議題,Curtis Sittenfeld再度確保她是當今最讓人目眩神迷的作家之一。

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Wonderfully tender and hilariously funny, Eligible tackles gender, class, courtship, and family as Curtis Sittenfeld reaffirms herself as one of the most dazzling authors writing today.

This version of the Bennet family—and Mr. Darcy—is one that you have and haven’t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray.

Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master’s degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won’t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane’s fortieth birthday fast approaches.

Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip’s friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . . 

And yet, first impressions can be deceiving.
