Since her death, people have got Jane Austen wrong. The real Jane - revealed in this landmark biography - was a less cosy, more spiky, more modern figure than she is usually imagined to be. Far from retelling a familiar story, Byrne's book uses new research and new techniques to give us Jane Austen for the 21st century.

Well written and informative on background but a bit of a slog through a not massively exciting life
