Description

Jane Austen is the world's bestselling novelist - 200 years after her death. We seem to have a never-ending appetite for the swooning of Sense & Sensibility; smouldering passion of Pride & Prejudice - resulting in a near constant supply of film adaptations and spin-off books. The fan market for Austen - the Austenites - is huge and international. Her novels are about to celebrate their bicentennials (Sense & Sensibility 2011). 30,000 visitors each year to Chawton, Hamspshire and Jane Austen Centre, Bath. This book will reveal the real Jane: bitchy, gossipy, badly behaved at times as well as show the side we all love: the writer, sister, true romantic.
