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)
