A JANE AUSTEN EDUCATION How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship and Things That Really Matter

by | Read by Sean Pratt

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

When graduate student Deresiewicz is assigned a Jane Austen novel, he’s certain he’ll hate the “feminine romantic drivel.” Instead, he discovers an author whose work speaks to every aspect of his life and makes him a better man by teaching him how to listen, learn, and love. Perfectly narrated by Sean Pratt, this memoir is a thoughtful and moving homage to Austen. Deresiewicz is candid about his own shortcomings, and Pratt brings these foibles to the listener with equal measures of emotion and humor. Together, Pratt and Deresiewicz give listeners a new appreciation for the worth of Austen’s work in a smart, funny package. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
