-- The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things introduces us to a woman deeply immersed in the world around her, yet far ahead of her time in her independence and ambition; to an author who was an astute commentator on human nature and the foibles of her own age. Rich and compelling, it is a fresh, insightful, and often surprising portrait of an artist and a vivid evocation of the complex world that shaped her.

This lady is one of the best biographers I have ever read. I have tried to read about several other people lately that I truly wish had the benefit of a great biographer like Ms. Byrne. She has proven to me once again (along with the several very bad biographies I've plodded through lately) that it takes a very particular talent to produce a truly revealing and readable biography.

interesting and written to appeal to the new to Austen reader, but misses out some important facts
