[Publications] Review of Mansfield Park and Mummies

Earlier this year, I reviewed Mansfield Park and Mummies by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian for Broad Universe's The Broadsheet. You can find the review here.

I'm not really a Jane Austen fan (yeah, any response you have to that I've probably heard from my younger sister), but I did mostly enjoy Mansfield Park and Mummies. I'm also glad to see one of these mashups written by a woman; I have some problems with a guy rewriting these books written by a woman. So often women's contributions to literary canon are ignored or overlooked or flat out denied, and I am really frustrated to see work by one of a high respected and recognized author appropriated by a guy.

But this isn't that, and I really think people will enjoy Mansfield Park and Mummies.
