Overview

"Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated." —Martin Amis, author, House of Meetings

Catherine Morland is a young girl with a very active imagination. Her naivety and love of sensational novels lead her to approach the fashionable social scene in Bath and her stay at nearby Northanger Abbey with preconceptions that have embarrassing and entertaining consequences.
