JANE'S FAME How Jane Austen Conquered the World

by | Read by Wanda McCaddon

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

JANE'S FAME, one way or another, is about the nineteenth-century author, who has steadily gained literary worldwide prominence. The author suggests that Jane is the only writer in the world to be recognized by first name only. Harman traces the arc of her rise to fame, then settles into a revealing biography, analyzing the cultural influences on works that still resonate today. Wanda McCaddon vocally expresses her appreciation of the author's craft, as well as the personal and family life that inspired Austen’s works. McCaddon narrates in a tone that recalls bygone eras, with an upper-class English accent and a genteel country sensibility that create an evocative atmosphere and transform this biography into an engaging listen. The ironies of romantic relationships are captivating, no matter the era in which they are imagined. A.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
