Jane Austen's novels do not age. Though they are of their time they are also timeless, providing compelling and convincing depictions of the relations between parents and their children, between siblings, friends and rivals, and between husbands, wives and lovers. Ironic, comic and unfailingly wise, these romances - for they are all love stories, as well as marriage stories - are dazzlingly written tales of spirited heroines refusing to accept their allotted role in life. But it is in the stories' sharp and witty prose, whose style has been much emulated, that Austen proves herself matchless. 'Tell us wisely and wittily about the nature of romantic entanglements and the follies of being human.' Nigella Lawson 'You're drawn into the story, and you come out the other end, and you know you've seen something great in action.' J. K. Rowling
