Maybe here's the secret to Curtis Sittenfeld's success: By her own admission, she's always trying to keep her inner Jane Austen alive.
She made that remark in an interview with NPR's Juana Summers to promote her upcoming release, Romantic Comedy.
You can guess the general tone of the book from its title, of course, and the women open the interview by discussing what makes for a successful one of its genre.
My personal favorite moment, though, comes when they talk about why Sittenfeld — an Ohio native — keeps coming back to Midwestern women in her fiction.
Head over to NPR to read or listen to Sittenfeld and Summers talk about Romantic Comedy, which comes out April 11.
