I really, really wish I could illustrate this post with "Stupid Rooster Comics," but the format doesn't work that way, so please follow the link and go see it. It never stops being funny. Also look around for Jane Eyre, Gatsby and the Brontes.
I was familiar with Beaton's work only because my friend who lent me the book is a big fan, but now she's everywhere. We saw her at the Brooklyn Book Festival, and now she's about to be on WNYC in 20 minutes or so.
