I didn't realize until recently that the film An Education was actually based on a piece of the same name that appeared in Granta magazine in 2003. That led to a longer memoir by Lynn Barber that picks up where the film leaves off. I am in the middle of reading An Education now and I have to say that I think it's actually better than the movie. The episode with Simon is only one chapter of her life that is rich with interesting episodes and jobs, one of which was working for Bob Guccione! If you ever wondered what happened to Jenny at the end of movie, then definitely pick up this book! Bon Weekend!
