A rare unfinished edition of a Jane Austen novel is to be completed by author Irvine Welsh.
The book, which is set in Glasgow was found, but only it's middle fifty pages still exist. The rest of the story is to completed by the rip roaring yarns of Mr Welsh.
Speaking from his offices, a Spokesman said: "This is a literary marriage made in Heaven. We will be inventing a brand new genre, Grit Chick Lit, and it should have something to appeal to both men and women, young and old, and all points in between"
When asked if this was really such a good idea, the spokesman denied that they were cashing in on a recent upsurge in an interest in the work of Ms Austen, but he did say that Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Robert Carlyle and Ewan McGregor were in talks to star in the film.
