Written in the last months of Austen’s life, ‘Sanditon’ features a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators in a newly established seaside resort, and shows the author contemplating a changing society with scepticism and amusement. It tells the story of Charlotte Heywood, who is transported by a chance accident from her rural hometown to Sanditon, where she is exposed to the intrigues and dalliances of a small town determined to reinvent itself – and encounters the intriguingly handsome Sidney Parker. This edition also includes the early epistolary novel ‘Lady Susan’ and the delightful fragment ‘The Watsons’.
