Claire Harman, one of our most accomplished biographers, takes an intriguing new approach to Jane Austen.

In Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World, she concentrates not so much on the woman but on her reputation.

Tracing the growth of Austen’s popularity and the changing status of her work in English culture, Claire examines her conversion into a classic author of the twentieth century.
