A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz

Hemingway, Kerouac, Salinger. There are a few authors who might come to the mind of a young man in search of life lessons. But in this wonderfully readable new memoir, William Deresiewicz reveals that it was the works of Jane Austen that profoundly shaped him. Weaving his own story–and that of the creator of Pride and Prejudice–around the ones her novels tell, Deresiewicz explores Austen’s eloquent celebration of the everyday and her belief in the value of ordinary lives.
