Biographie de l'auteur
Jane Austen's delightful, carefully wrought novels of manners remain surprisingly relevant, nearly 200 years after they were first published. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Emma, are those rare books that offer us a glimpse at the mores of a specific period while addressing the complexities of love, honour and responsibility that still intrigue us today.
