The enduring appeal of Jane Austen’s fiction is captured in this beautifully illustrated pocket-size collection of quotations taken from her celebrated works

The novels of Jane Austen are famed for their ability to perfectly convey the nuances of social interactions in the Regency period. Perhaps what makes the books still so popular is just how recognizable the social situations and character types of two hundred years ago are today. This collection of some of Austen’s most choice and wry observations features witticisms on love and marriage, the battle of the sexes, town and country, and moral duty. Dipping into all of her six published novels, this anthology will delight Austen fans and includes charming illustrations by Polly Fern.
