by Daniel Quealy

What do you do when the girl you love becomes an early nineteenth-century heroine from a Jane Austen novel? This is one of the many distractions for young American writer Joe Fitzgerald as he travels through Europe with the beautiful Tressa Scott, an accomplished Shakespearean actor from London. The ambitious Joe Fitzgerald confidently intends to write a Great Gatsby for the modern world on his first attempt as a novelist, and he believes that this magical story will emerge, sparked from incidental interviews during his travels. Tressa studies to portray Jane Austen heroine Emma Woodhouse, while effectively becoming other Austen heroines in her eccentric method of preparation. Joe Fitzgerald’s reflections on the beginnings of a writer and modern America’s representation from his notebooks provide continuous humor in this satiric novel of manners. Joe’s insightful narration of his romantic comedy poignantly describes the struggles of love after a perfect inception.


The English Girl is Daniel Quealy’s second novel. His first novel, Leaving Nowhere, is being prepared for publication. Daniel, his wife Karen, and their daughter Mollie make their home in Riverside, Illinois.
