Bitches in Bonnets. Life Lessons from Jane Austen's Mean Girls.

SKU: 17677

Makowski shows how modern social and behavioral scientists are just beginning to document and quantify what Austen knew instinctively about human behavior. One reason reading Austen is so satisfying is that strong feeling of recognition we find in her characters and their interactions, Because Austen was such a keen observer of the humans around her, we can learn from the characters in her books. We don't have to wait for science to catch up with our favorite author. Makowski examines characters from all six novels to glean life lessons and have some fun along the way. Prometheus Books. 2023.
