    'morning after' report

    I don't quite understand the following passage:

    "[Jane Austen] mostly sizes up the future in generalities so anymore than that must be our own concoctions! I'm not sure that any film maker would create one that we would all approve anyway, so minus any 'morning after' reports from Austen herself about their lives, I suppose we may as well each make up our own! "

    I got the first part, but don't understand "so minus any 'morning after' reports from Austen herself about their lives," at all. Could someone rephrase it for me? Thanks.

    Re: 'morning after' report

    "[Jane Austen] mostly sizes up the future in generalities so anymore than that must be our own concoctions! I'm not sure that any film maker would create one that we would all approve of anyway, so (if there isn't any reports from Austen herself, about their lives after the passing of the event/scene) I suppose we may as well each make up our own! "
    -----you can delete the clause between brackets without changing the meaning of the passage much.
