Description
Have you ever wondered what Mr. Darcy was really thinking? Offstage events barely mentioned in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice are revealed in this new perspective, and many surprising facts come to light—such as Mr. Darcy's proposal to another young woman. He writes of his life as a society gentleman in Georgian London and of his dangerous friendship with Lord Byron, and tells the full story of his sister's infatuation with the dastardly Mr. Wickham. Most importantly, he describes how he gradually falls in love with Elizabeth Bennet, and in the process painfully gains an understanding of himself.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy is one of the most fascinating heroes in literature.... Though the story presented in the diary entries adheres to the structure of Pride and Prejudice, the Bennets, even including Elizabeth herself, are very much in the background, while other characters, such as the Bingleys and Darcy's sister Georgiana, play a larger role. While trying to fend off his growing attachment to Lizzie, 'an undersized young lady of doubtful family,' Darcy recounts his day-to-day activities—managing his estate, looking after his sister, engaging in pastimes with his disreputable friend Lord Byron that would make the ladies at Longbourn blush.... A smart and entertaining period piece."—Booklist
