The first book
to investigate Jane Austen's popular significance today, Everybody's Jane considers why Austen matters to amateur readers, how they make use of her
novels, what they gain from visiting places associated with her, and why they
create works of fiction and nonfiction inspired by her novels and life.
The voices of everyday readers emerge from
both published and unpublished sources, including interviews conducted with literary tourists and archival research into the
founding of the Jane Austen Society of North America and the exceptional Austen
collection of Alberta Hirshheimer Burke of Baltimore.
Additional topics include new Austen
portraits; portrayals of Austen, and of Austen fans, in film and fiction; and
hybrid works that infuse Austen's writings with horror, erotica, or explicit
Everybody's Jane will appeal to all those who care about Austen and will change how we think about the
importance of literature and reading today.
