There are three reasons why you should read Audrey Bilger’s piece Just like a woman at Los Angeles Review of Books.
The first is that it is about Jane Austen.
The second is that it talks about two books which try to show why Austen is a great writer.
And, the last, is for the painting Les invisibles en Tete-a-Tete, from the series Le Supreme Bon Ton, No. 16; artist unknown; published by Martinet, Paris, c. 1810-1815 that adorns the piece. A must-see!
Bilger strongly recommends one of the books under review, which I am adding to my to-be-bought-and-read pile right away!
A Jane Austen Education is aimed at a general readership. For those who have resisted Austen because of the chick-lit stigma or for anyone who wonders why reading matters, this book will give you reason to believe in the power of the word.
