With Keira Knightley recently bringing one of Jane Austen's beloved heroines to the big screen in Pride and Prejudice, enthusiasm for Jane Austen is more ardent than ever. Austen scholar Deirdre Le Faye can be thanked for some of this fervor--her work has inspired many of the film adaptations of Austen's great love stories."A meticulously researched and clearly written expose of Austen's world by one of Britain's foremost experts." --Good Book Guide
