From Publishers' Weekly:

A companion to Jane Austen's Emma, released to coincide with the video release of the Gwynneth Paltrow film. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

AAs she did in Mansfield Revisited ( LJ 3/1/85) , Aiken again draws on Jane Austen. Jane Fairfax is Aiken's brilliant parallel novel to Emma. It re-creates the cozy, busy world of Highbury as seen through the eyes of Emma's only rival. Jane, the talented niece of the garrulous Miss Bates, causes a stir in the village upon her return from the more sophisticated worlds of London and Weymouth. Though lacking some of the bite and brilliant irony of Austen's most critically acclaimed novel, this is ex traordinarily well done and highly recommended for all Austen and Regency fans.-- Cynthia Johnson Whealler , Cary Memorial Lib . , Lexington, Mass.
