Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Stone Diaries focuses on the life and fiction of Jane Austen in a critical biography of the reclusive author of Pride and Prejudice and other great novels. Reprint.

Review:
"An undistinguished addition to the list of recently published biographies of Jane Austen....The topic of Austen is well-traveled ground, of course, but Shields claims that her effort will be distinguished by her efforts to read 'what is implicit' in Austen's novels and history....Well-intentioned, but far from compelling."

Kirkus, 12/15/2000

Review:
"Carol Shields' lens is firmly trained on Jane Austen and her family and novels, going back and forth between the life and the fiction with the implicit assumption that the one faithfully mirrored the other. The dominant question that emerges from both is: Is it better to remain single or to be married?...More of Austen's lens and less of Shields' would have added even more to the wealth of material on Jane Austen."

Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 02/18/2001
