This review is from: The Real Jane Austen (Hardcover)
No mere chronological slog through Austen's life, but a revealing biography that focuses on 'small things' - a chapel cushion or a bolt of lace - to examine the author's beliefs, desires and achievements. You'll need Tomalin also, but I can't recommend this new approach highly enough. It made me see Austen afresh, and that is some achievement.
