What is Holly Goddard Jones reading?

I recently asked the writer Holly Goddard Jones what she has been reading.

Her reply mainly discusses a book of short stories by a fellow Kentucky writer.

And then there are these books:
I’ve read other books recently that I loved — Claire Messud’s The Emperor's Children, William Trevor’s Felicia's Journey, and I finally succumbed to Jane Austen after resisting her for a long time, which means I’ve plowed through Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma the way I once plowed through C.S. Lewis and Madeleine L’Engle....
Read about what Holly Goddard Jones is reading and check out an interview with her at The Kenyon Review last year.
