In her breezy writing style (just like hearing her talk enthusiastically about one of her favourite authors), Susannah’s meticulously researched and attractively illustrated information is an enjoyable and informative read. All her titles are available for purchase from this page.

Susannah’s signature Literary Reader’s Guides are concise gems of information. Each guide is a nugget of literary gold which entices the reader on an armchair investigation of a significant author’s life and works. Susannah writes in such a fascinating way, weaving a range of interesting facts, that you will be looking for more before you know it!

Susannah has published many articles, books, monographs and spoken word CDs, most notably, several about Jane Austen’s work. Unlike so many research books, Susannah’s works are definitely intended for a popular readership.

  • A Reader's Guide to Henry James and 'Washington Square'

    A Reader's Guide to Henry James and 'Washington Square'

    $4.00

    Washington Square is a moving novel. Its power comes from Henry James’s study of the human mind and its workings. One of Henry James’s easiest books to read, it is a fabulous depiction of wealthy life in New York in the middle of the 19th century. It has always been my favourite Henry James novel. I hope you enjoy it too.

    A Reader's Guide to W.Somerset Maugham and 'Cakes and Ale'

    $4.00

    There are not many novels that can be described as having charm, but I think this is one of them. I love Cakes and Ale! I so enjoy its devastating critique of the literary world. Maugham’s pen could be acidic, his wit penetrating, and he could capture a character in a few well-chosen words.

    “The past is another country: they do things differently there” – so begins the haunting novel The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley. I think this is a stunning book. It is about class, illicit love, boyhood dreams versus cruel reality, and it movingly depicts growing up and the loss of innocence.
