Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Hilariously imagined text conversations - the passive aggressive, the clever, and the strange - from classic and modern literary figures, from Scarlett O'Hara to Jessica Wakefield Mallory Ortberg, the co-creator of the cult-favorite website The Toast , presents this whimsical collection of hysterical text conversations from your favorite literary characters. Everyone knows that if Scarlett O'Hara had an unlimited text-and-data plan, she'd constantly try to tempt Ashley away from Melanie with suggestive messages. If Mr. Rochester could text Jane Eyre, his ardent missives would obviously be in all-caps. And Daisy Buchanan would not only text while driving, she'd text you to pick her up after she totaled her car. Based on the popular web-feature, Texts from Jane Eyre is a witty, irreverent mashup that brings the characters from your favorite books into the twenty-first century.
Review Quote*"In Texts from Jane Eyre Mallory Ortberg hilariously proves that she understands fictional characters better than they understand themselves. She makes me laugh like no one else."-Rainbow Rowell, author of Eleanor & Park "Dear Mallory Ortberg's Publisher: Please send me 27 cases of Texts from Jane Eyre, because I need to give it to everyone."-Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love "Witty and literate. Smart-ass humor with an emphasis on smart. I'm not sure who I'm more jealous of: Mallory Ortberg for her comic brilliance, or whoever got to sit next to her in high school English."-Adam Bertocci, author of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski
