Reviews

"Worsley offers us much that Austen's admirers wish to know...with humor and poignancy and common sense, just as Austen would have wished."--Amy Bloom, New York Times Book Review


" ...A personal look inside the life of a singular woman.... [the] intimate spaces in both this book and in Austen's original works fly off the page in full-fledged color." --Madeleine Luckel, Vogue

"Worsley writes with a historian's acumen and a Janeite's passion...This volume is sure to delight Austen fans."--Library Journal, Starred Review


"Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity." - Amanda Foreman, bestselling author of Georgianna, Duchess of Devonshire
