A Memoir of Jane Austen
Introduced by Fay Weldon
Now reissued in series with our Austen collection, this biography is an affectionate portrait of one of our best-loved writers, and the time in which she wrote.
If you’ve ever wondered what Jane Austen thought of Walter Scott, whether she was good at spillikins, or how Emma and Mr Knightley fared after they were married, then this memoir will provide you with the answers. This edition, originally published in 1989, features an introduction by Fay Weldon and numerous images, re-sourced in colour for this reissue. The binding has also been redesigned to complement our recent editions of Austen’s novels.
