Jane Austen is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in the English literary canon, and recent film and television
adaptations of her works have brought them to a new audience almost 200 years after her untimely death. Yet much remains unknown about her life, and there is considerable interest in the romantic history of the creator of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy.
Andrew Norman here presents a new account of her life, breaking new ground by proposing that she and her
sister, Cassandra, fell out over a young clergyman, who he idenfities for the first time. He also suggests that, along
with the Addison's Disease that killed her, Jane Austen suffered from TB.
Written by a consummate biographer, Jane Austen: an Unrequited Love is a must-read for all lovers of the author and her works.
