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.
