Lauded for her eloquence, observation and wry humour, Jane Austen was a novelist who was highly regarded and greatly celebrated in her own time. However, her appeal is as great as ever, and her insights remain as fresh and relevant today as when they were first published. This delightful volume offers thematic extracts from fiction and correspondence; featuring quotes from her celebrated and best-loved novels, alongside extracts from Austen's letters to her sister and confidante, Cassandra. This beautifully packaged book contains a host of quotations displaying Austen's sharp - indeed, often wicked - social observation and satirical wit, which will be enjoyed by fans of the author as well as readers who are new to her writing. It is a charming tribute to a writer whose work will resonate for centuries to come.
