    Originally published: London : HarperPress, 2012.
    This new biography explores the forces that shaped the interior life of Jane Austen. Each chapter begins by evoking an object that conjures up a key moment or theme in Austen's life and work. The woman who emerges is far tougher, more socially and politically aware, and more modern than the conventional picture. The book looks at the biographical influences on her work, as well as her boundless wit and energy--Excerpted from bk. jacket.
