The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
A Matter of Honor - Edward H. Carpenter The short tale of how Wickham prevented bloodshed between Willoughby and Colonel Brandon in hopes of ingratiating himself with Willoughby. I hate Wickham with a burning passion, but his villainy comes across as almost charming here. It's so unapologetic and irrepressible. And, unlike many spin-offs of Austen, Carpenter gets the dialog and social rules of the period right on the money.
