Penguin Classics On Air Interviews of William Deresiewicz – Author of A Jane Austen Education

I absolutely LOVED this book and cannot gush about A Jane Austen Education enough, REALLY!!! If you need further encouragement, please watch the Penguin Classics On Air video interviews by editorial director Elda Rotor of the author William Deresiewicz. A former Yale professor, he is open and affable and just the right personality to explain Austen’s lessons to a wider audience.

You can read my raving review of A Jane Austen Education here. Bill is on a tour in May and I hope to see him when he hits Seattle next Thursday. I hope to share my impressions of the man who was so moved by Austen’s work that she changed his personal relationships and life.

  1. I ordered this book 2 nights ago and then saw it at my local B & N last night. I wanted to take it home so badly. Thanks for putting up the interview. Will you be putting up more of it?


  2. I have this book on my wish list – so thank you for posting his On Air interview – how wonderful for a man to love Jane Austen and be able to learn from her. I think the book just moved up on my list.


  3. Oh, what a smart, smart man! =) Thanks for posting the video. Hope there are more to come. Definitely going on my to-read list (and to-give-to-husbands-of-friends list). =D


  4. Laurel Ann, this sounds terrific.
    Good literature should challenge us and make us delve deep within ourselves. Good literature is like having a relationship. We need to listen, look, be prepared to change, be challenged and all that stuff that makes up real life.

    You have inspired me Laurel Anne!!!!!!!!

    All the best,
