Why we love this
Jane Austen: A Life, by David Nokes. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1987. First printing. A modern examination of the myths associated with Austen's life, turning up rather more racy incidents than readers may expect. From the initial rejection of Pride and Prejudice to the burning of her personal letters by her sister, David Nikes pieces together Austen's struggle and ground-breaking achievements.
