Reviews

"Sharp, endearingly self-effacing . . . a profound truth lies embedded in Deresiewicz's witty account." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"Like Austen, Deresiewicz is lucid, principled and knows how to think as well as how to feel, without ever sacrificing one to the other.... a delightful and enlightening book. -- SLATE.COM "An entertaining and original version of literary criticism--as autobiography." -- THE SEATTLE TIMES "With A Jane Austen Education, Deresiewicz writes with discerning wit and quiet perception about the lessons in friendship, empathy, honesty, happiness, and love he learns from each of Austen's immortal novels." -- CHICAGO TRIBUNE "[Deresiewicz] is charming on the page. He talks about literary characters as if they were real people, and about Austen as if she lived at the end of the block...he does so in a style that comes across as fresh and conversational, like a genuinely witty bibliophile you'd like to talk with at a party. " -- LOS ANGELES REVIEW OF BOOKS "[Deresiewicz] writes with wit, charm and candor, and the result is simply delightful." -- ASSOCIATED PRESS
