The Making of Jane Austen by Devoney Looser
Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017
Is It right for your book club?
Yes, definitely! The paperback edition now includes a brief reader's guide with discussion questions. I'd love to hear from you if you're considering choosing it.
This book works best in clubs familiar with Austen's fiction OR its film adaptations. (You could read or watch Pride and Prejudice and then choose this book.)
