Entertaining and occasionally shocking facts and trivia about Austen's life and work

Two hundred years after her death, Jane Austen is the world's bestselling novelist. Readers seem to have a neverending appetite for the swooning of Sense & Sensibility and the smoldering passion of Pride & Prejudice, resulting in a near constant supply of film adaptations and spin-off books. This book reveals the real Jane—bitchy, gossipy, and badly behaved at times—as well as showing the side we all love—the writer, the sister, and the true romantic. It also covers her best loved characters like Mr. Darcy and Marianne, novel and film locations, gossip and flirting, hangovers and fashion, and holidays and writing advice.

About the Author

Lauren Nixon is a guide for the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, writes for the Austen society magazine, and speaks regularly at the Austen Festival.
