Praise
"[A] sharp and scholarly analysis of Jane Austen's life....Harman...delights with this comprehensive catalogue of Austen-mania." (starred review)
"Harman's shrewd critical study, brimming with Brit wit, freshens up our impression of Austen....With nimble steps, Harman dances through 200 years' worth of critical reception of Austen's novels, sharing the good, the bad and the brainless."
"JANE'S FAME charts the rise and rise of the Austen cult and reminds us how weird that cult can be....Harman's book doesn't contain much about Austen that hasn't been covered elsewhere, but it presents the story of Austen's self-fashioning and later popularity in a convincing, enjoyable way."
"[A] good book that, like Austen's oeuvre itself, leaves the reader wishing for more."
From the Publisher
Annotation British Austen scholar Claire Harman charts the vast and various influence Jane Austen's life and works have had during the last two centuries since her death. JANE'S FAME examines Austen's different factions of devotees throughout history, the ever-shifting critical response to her work, and the books and films that have blossomed all around her, some like flowers and some like weeds.
