At Home with Jane Austen by Kim Wilson

A delightful coffee table book. I can picture one curling up with it and a cup of tea on a long winter’s afternoon/evening. A good selection of quotes from the books and Jane’s letters(and her mother and a few others). Perhaps nothing groundbreaking, but all very enjoyable. I was surprised about the watercolor from perhaps Anna Austen Lefroy, showing Chawton Cottage and perhaps Jane and Cassandra walking in the lane. -Kirk

“Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company.”

~Author Unknown

“She would never again use outright parody to make her points, but the enduring themes she explores here would reappear, and in Catherine she creates the first of her principal characters about whom readers, even centuries later, care deeply” -David M Shapard from “The Annotated Northanger Abbey”
