Jane Austen is the world's bestselling novelist. Two hundred years after her death we seem to have a never-ending appetite for the swooning of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY and the smouldering passion of PRIDE AND 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.
This book, previously published as THE JANE AUSTEN MISCELLANY and republished in an attractive new gift edition, reveals the real Jane: bitchy, gossipy and badly behaved at times, as well as showing the side we all love: the writer, sister and true romantic.
