Everybody's Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination.
Wells researched Jane Austen’s following for this gentle, very readable study of fandom. She treats fan tourism, fan fiction, compulsive collecting, movies, book adaptations, and mutations (like Jane the Vampire, Elizabeth the Zombie), with mild respectful humor. The reader finds that where love of Jane Austen is concerned, the divide between scholarship and fandom is a very fuzzy one, as studious amateurs and fun-loving academics already know. The book is also an excellent reference if you’re looking for the best titles to add to your collection! Continuum, 2012. Paper. List $37.95. NEW. $20.00
