Product description

Review

"Contains almost as many gems as the novels encompass."--"Miami Herald" "The novels of Jane Austen live beyond the page, haunting our lives. The writers in this volume explain their own relationship with Austen and together are a kind of invitation for us, whether we're Janeites or not, to understand why we are so in her thrall."--"Chicago Tribune"" ""Austen's irony is so deliciously multilayered that every rereading will yield a fresh perspective. This book offers many such discoveries. . . . [A] delightful volume."--"The Economist" "Jane Austen remains a hot literary property [and this book] explains her eternal appeal.""--USA Today" "Austenites will enjoy dipping into this collection."--"Booklist"" ""The pieces make many astute points about Austen's oeuvre."--
