The Jane Austen Remedy.
Wilson first read Jane Austen in 1947, and earned a PhD on reading and teaching Austen fiction in 2021. In between she taught English and worked on oral history projects, including one with Holocuast survivors. In this reading memoir, she shares how interactively reading Austen during different times throughout her life brought her deeper understanding of her own experiences. More recent rereading of Austen has helped her find self-acceptance, joy, and compassion. The result is an inspiring book about self-discovery. Allison & Busby Ltd. 2022. Hb, Dj. NEW. $20.00
