Product description

Review

This is my kind of history: carefully researched but so vivid that you are convinced Lucy Worsley was actually there at the party - or the parsonage. (Antonia Fraser)

Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity. (Amanda Foreman)

A vivid portrait of Jane Austen. A must for any Austenite. (Red magazine)

Brilliant and very moving, this book is a fascinating and original exploration of Jane Austen with lots of new material - Worsley brings Austen to life superbly, through her pages she is a flesh and blood woman, intelligent, powerful, contradictory, loving, loved. A magnificent book. (Kate Williams)

Rarely, if ever, will you encounter a historian so in command of their material. Truly, this is a dazzling exercise in persuasion, written with sense and sensibility. (Saturday Express)

A deep, prolifically researched dive into the houses, vacation homes, and schools where the author spent her life. (Vogue magazine)

Worsley offers us much that Austen's admirers wish to know... [she] is entirely convincing. (New York Times)

An interesting portrait of Georgian and Regency material culture. There's much intriguing historical detail. (Literary Review)

A sprightly new take on Austen's life. (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

Historian Lucy Worsley visits Jane Austen at home, exploring the author's life through the places which meant the most to her.
