More About the Author

A twenty-something graduate fresh from an English Literature degree at Bath Spa University who stumbled into being an author, Lauren Nixon is a life long Jane Austen fan. Her work as a guide at The Jane Austen Centre in Bath led to her first book, 'Jane Austen: A Celebration of her life and work', which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Sense and Sensibility. In addition to Austen and the Regency, Lauren specialises in early Gothic writing and women's writing from the 17th to the 20th century. Her combination of the contemporary and the modern sets her titles apart from others on the market.

Format: Hardcover
A great book for a Christmas gift, beautifully illustrated but your description is incorrect unless later stock is different although price is the same. I bought 2 and both are as originally described - hardback.

A substantial hardback book with attractive illustrations giving insight into the live and work of Jane Austen. An easy read that would be enjoyed by those familiar or unfamiliar with Miss Austen's works.

You can't miss anything about Jane Austin 14 Feb. 2013
By jpr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have read only part of this book. I read some almost everyday and am enjoying learning about her day and the people. I downloaded all of Jane's books, etc. onto my Kindle. I have been an avid reader since my youth, but I have not read any of her books. I am now reading Sense and Sensibility and enjoying it a lot. It is going to take me some time to read them all. I am at this time going to turn 75 in March. Do I have time? Hope so. This will be one of my goals.
