The nation's favourite Jane Austen novel -- her enduing story of pride and prejudice.
     When Elizabeth Bennet meets Mr Darcy she is repelled by his overbearing pride, and prejudice towards her family.

Polite society will be turned upside down in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry and love -- Jane Austen's classic romance novel.

   • Adapted for TV in the well-loved 1995 BBC drama starring Colin Firth. 

   • With a new introduction  by Alexander McCall Smith

• "Like Irvine Welsh, I am a great admirer of Jane Austen." --Alexander McCall Smith
