"These three short works from across Jane Austen's career show her writing in a variety of styles, from melodrama to satire, and exploring a range of classes and setting. The early epistolary novel Lady Susan depicts an unscrupulous coquette, toying with several men. The Watsons is a delightful fragment, whose spirited heroine finds her marriage opportunities restricted by poverty and pride. Written in the last months of Austen's life, the tantalizing and incomplete novel 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."--

Lady Susan shines among the three, complete; written in the Sense and Sensibility period. Don't miss Drabble's intelligent introduction. If you liked the movie Love and Friendship, don't miss the source material.
