#AusteninAugust: How have I never read this before?

Lady Susan - Jane Austen, R.W. Chapman

It is deliciously catty

 

"I congratulate you and Mr. Vernon on being about to receive into your family the most accomplished coquette in England. As a very distinguished flirt I have always been taught to consider her, but it has lately fallen in my way to hear some particulars of her conduct at Langford: which prove that she does not confine herself to that sort of honest flirtation which satisfies most people, but aspires to the more delicious gratification of making a whole family miserable."

 

Lady Susan sounds like a handful.
