Jane Austen
Jane Austen: A Life Revealed | Catherine Reef
9 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Jane Austens popularity never seems to fade. She has hordes of devoted fans, and there have been numerous adaptations of her life and work. But who was Jane Austen? The writer herself has long remained a mystery. And despite the resonance her work continues to have for teens, there has never been a young adult trade biography on Austen. Catherine Reef changes that with this highly readable account. She takes an intimate peek at Austens life and innermost feelings, interweaving her narrative with well-crafted digests of each of Austens published novels. The end result is a book that is almost as much fun to read as Janes own workand truly a life revealed. Includes bibliography and index.
