    Book On One

    'Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen, read by Karen Ardiff.

    ‘It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife…’

    So begins one of Jane Austen’s best-loved novels, which celebrates its 200th birthday this year.

    Throughout Valentine’s week, listeners to The Book on One will be treated to the tale of the relationship between Austen’s feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet and the aloof Mr Darcy.
