Rigaud presents a witty, riveting, and sexy retelling of Pride and Prejudice in her debut novel, originally self-published as Slurry. In this modern tale of manners and morality, Fitzwilliam Darcy is the founder and lead guitarist of rock band Slurry. His bandmates, Charles Bingley and Richard Fitzwilliam, think an ideal opening band would be Long Bourne Suffering, the trio of Jane Bennet, Elizabeth Bennet, and Charlotte Lucas from Meryton, N.Y. Darcy worries that touring with hot women will cause endless drama; Elizabeth overhears Darcy's disdain and thinks him arrogant. Her scorn for Darcy leaves her vulnerable to video director George Wickham, forcing Darcy to reveal that he allowed his own reputation to suffer in exchange for protecting his younger sister from George. Sex, drugs, and rock 'n'roll go surprisingly well with this retelling of Austen's classic. (Sept.)
