Jane Austen's Erotic Advice.
Deidre Lynch and Jocelyn Harris reviews on the back cover let you know that, despite the word "erotic" in the title, this is a scholarly work sure to delight the professionals among us as well as the interested amateurs. Starting with Austen's written advice to her niece Fanny Knight, the author argues that we as readers stand in for Fanny as Austen uses her last three novels to give Fanny alternative solutions. By close reading of the novels, Raff enlightens us on Austen's allure that has readers, 200 years later, still looking to her for advice. OUP. Hb, Dj. 2014. NEW. $27.00
