Growing Older with Jane Austen.
Lane follows the theme of growing older in Austen's novels and letters. Tying references to aging in Austen's novels to Austen's own life experiences, the book brings new inight to both the life and the works. Topics range from old maids, dowagers and spinsters, to young people just losing the blush of youth. Beautifully written, this unique approach to Austen's work is a must-read for us all.
