Review:

There is plenty to enjoy in this parade of Austen micro-knowledge (Evening Standard)

Highly entertaining ... reveals a quite unexpected aspect to the novelist and her books (Daily Mail)

Any new book on Jane Austen raises the urgent question, Would I get more pleasure from reading this than from re-reading my favourite Jane Austen novel? If you decide to give What Matters in Jane Austen a chance you'll know after a few pages that you've made the right choice (John Carey, Sunday Times)

[A] fine collection of essays ... Like all good literary critics, he has the happy knack of making you read even familiar works with fresh eyes, and the essays in this book are among the best of their kind (Daily Telegraph)

A detailed primer on Jane Austen's attitudes to sex, money, class and even the weather (Sunday Times Must Reads)

Fascinating ... If you love Jane Austen, you'll love this book too - it's almost as good as finding an unpublished novel (The Lady)

Book Description:

From 'Is there Sex Before Marriage in Austen?' to 'Which important Austen characters never speak?' the Guardian Book Club columnist answers 21 apparently trivial questions that reveal deep and hidden truths about Jane Austen's fictional world
