Miss Jane Summary : LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD IN FICTION The acclaimed author of Last Days of the Dog-Men and The Heaven of Mercury brings to life a forgotten woman and a lost world in a strange and bittersweet pastoral "Exquisitely written ... a novel that will linger inside you as long as your own memories do. Brad Watson's gifts are immense." Andre Dubus III Since his award-winning debut collection of stories, Last Days of the Dog-Men, Brad Watson's work has been as melancholy, witty, strange, and lovely as any in America. Inspired by the true story of his own great-aunt, he explores the life of Miss Jane Chisolm, born in rural, early-twentieth-century Mississippi with a genital birth defect that would stand in the way of the central "uses" for a woman in that time and place - namely, sex and marriage. From the country doctor who adopts Jane to the hard tactile labor of farm life, from the sensual and erotic world of nature around her to the boy who loved but was forced to leave her, the world of Miss Jane Chisolm is anything but barren. Free to satisfy only herself, she mesmerizes those around her, exerting an unearthly fascination that lives beyond her still.

The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman Summary : "This is a novel in the guise of the tape-recorded recollections of a black woman who has lived 110 years, who has been both a slave and a witness to the black militancy of the 1960's. In this woman Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure, a woman equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in The Sound And The Fury." Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, has 'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. Gaines' novel brings to mind other great works The Odyssey for the way his heroine's travels manage to summarize the American history of her race, and Huckleberry Finn for the clarity of her voice, for her rare capacity to sort through the mess of years and things to find the one true story in it all." -- Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek. "Stunning. I know of no black novel about the South that excludes quite the same refreshing mix of wit and wrath, imagination and indignation, misery and poetry. And I can recall no more memorable female character in Southern fiction since Lena of Faulkner's Light In August than Miss Jane Pittman." -- Josh Greenfeld, Life

Wild Roses for Miss Jane Summary : Wild Roses for Miss Jane Miss Jane Engle has found a new home, security, and a classroom full of smiling faces in her 1876 one-room schoolhouse in Albany, New York. Choosing to teach rather than to marry handsome widower and father of one son, Garrett Michaels, Jane has found serenity...if not happiness and love. When Jane reads the pirate book young Trace Michaels has hidden in his school desk, Jane is transported to a 1722 British sailing ship that is being attacked by the notorious Caribbean pirate, Captain Garrett Michaels. Although he looks just as handsome as his 1870's counterpart, there are some major differences -- the cruel and sinister look in his eyes, and the sharp dagger he has pressed against her throat. Will Jane be able to tell the Albany Board of Education "what she did on her summer vacation" if she ever returns?

The Mysterious Death of Miss Jane Austen Summary : "Where would I begin to explain it all...?" Twenty-six years have passed since the death of Jane Austen. Armed with a lock of Austen's hair as perhaps her best clue, Anne Sharp, former governess to the Austen family and Jane's close friend, has decided at last to tell her story-a story of family intrigues, shocking secrets, forbidden loves, and maybe even murder... Perfect for fans of Death Comes to Pemberley, upon its publication in the UK, Lindsay Ashford's fictional interpretation of the few facts surrounding Jane Austen's mysterious death sparked an international debate and uproar. None of the medical theories offer a satisfactory explanation of Jane Austen's early demise at the age of forty-one. Could it be that what everyone has assumed was a death by natural causes was actually more sinister? Lindsay Ashford's vivid novel delves deep into Austen's world and puts forth a shocking suggestion-was someone out to silence her?
