the variations
Here I found Joan Aiken, too with her (1990): Jane Fairfax. It’s the story from Emma in some parts but with the view of the „other girll“. I loved this one very much because it makes some suggestions that really fit into the story.
Then there is a new kind of  Pride and Prejudice by Fenton, Kate (1995): Lions and liquorice (Stolz und Stachelbeeren). It’s splitted in two parts: first an author tries to write a new version of  P and P and in the second part the story goes in as in P and P. It’s funny and light reading.
Speaking of funny reading: of course there is Fielding, Helen (1996): Bridget Jones’s diary (Schokolade zum Frühstück). And the second
 novel 1999): Bridget Jones – the edge of reason (am Rande des Wahnsinns) with allusion to P and P and Persuasion.
It’s obvious that a lot of people choose Pride and Prejudice for their works. So there are two more: Aylmer, Janet (1996): Darcy’s story   and Nathan, Melissa (2000): Pride, prejudice and Jasmin Field.  The first one tells the story from Darcy’s point of view and it’s nice to see this, and of course it ontains a lot of citations. The second one didn’t come up with surprising twists but it’s nice, too.
