Literary heroines as hilarious bra burners?

Imagine Catherine telling Heathcliff exactly where to shove it. Or Elizabeth Bennett giving Mr. Darcy a piece of her mind. Beloved characters from Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott and the Bronte sisters are reimagined as contemporary feminists who reject the men in their lives. In this funny sendup, the women flee from their suitors’ marriage proposals as the men wage war. Written by award-winner Jaclyn Backhaus, You on the Moors Now is a laugh-out loud twist on your college British literature class with a side of empowering sisterhood.
