Jane Austen’s Guide to Modern Life’s Dilemas

Answers to your most burning questions about life, love, happiness (and what to wear) from the great novelist herself

Rebecca Smith

Jane Austen is more of a celebrity and media queen now than she was in her lifetime. If Jane were with us today, she would have had her own column in an upmarket glossy – a smart-cookie agony aunt. Jane Austen’s Guide to Modern Life’s Dilemmas is a look at work, domestic and romantic dilemmas, answered using Jane’s clear-eyed, witty, unsentimental view of life, love and money. Turn to it as you would a best friend.

REBECCA SMITH was the first official writer in residence at Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton, England. She teaches creative writing at the University of Southampton, and is Jane Austen's great-great-great-great-great niece. Smith is the author of 'The Bluebird Cafe', 'Happy Birthday' and 'All That', and 'A BIt of Earth'. This is her first non-fiction book.
