Reading literature is always an act of translation, but reading it in another language often can be a great leap of faith. Jane Austen devotee Amy Elizabeth Smith attempted that act of courage when she taught Pride and Prejudice and other novels in no fewer than six Latin American countries (Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Guatemala, Chile, and Paraguay). All Roads Lead to Austen is her touching, self-effacing recap of her encounters with new millennium Spanish-language readers who were able to grasp the writing and identify with the characters of a 19th century British Regency novelist. A charming memoir about spanning differences; a trade paperback and NOOK Book original.
