Author(s): Lesley Bolton
Despite Jane Austen's popularity, her body of work is small. Only six completed novels, two fragments, a few letters, some juvenilia...after re-reading the novels 100 times, what's a devoted Jane Austen-ite to do? Crammed full of quotes from favourite characters, the barbed wit of Jane herself as revealed in letters to friends and relatives, trivia and titbits from the period in which Austen lived and wrote, and a healthy consideration of that world of film and print spawned by the phenomenon that is Jane Austen, this book provides enough material to soothe the soul of the most avid fan.
Lesley Bolton is a writer from the Midwest who would, if she could, spend all her time reading Jane Austen and watching the film adaptations of her novels.
