Jane Austen: A Life PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Jane Austen: A Life free pdf Jane Austen is the celebrated biography by bestselling author Claire Tomalin. "A perfect biography: detailed, witty, warm. Tomalin involves us so deeply that Austen's final illness and death come almost as a personal tragedy to the reader". (Dirk Bogarde, Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year). "Truly marvellous. I cannot think that a better life of Jane Austen then Claire Tomalin's will be written for many years. Her readings of the novels are full of brilliant insights. She often seems to be standing behind Austen's desk, observing her writing". (Philip Hensher, Mail on Sunday). "As near perfect a Life of Austen as we are likely to get: intelligent, feeling, suggestive. Tomalin presents Austen as remarkably clever- sensitive, but sentimental- tough, yet observant- guarded- and a woman with the devil of a genius in her". (Carmen Callil, Daily Telegraph). "Tomalin has written a biography that reflects Austen's own exacting standards, a book that radiates intelligence, wit and insight". (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times). "Of all the Austen biographies, this is the best ...leaves the reader with a much deeper appreciation of the circumstances and motivation behind the creation of those six perfect novels". (Harpers
