There is a becoming Jane Austen who delights Victorians, spinsters, and weenies — and who disgusted Mark Twain. There also exists a nastier Jane Austen who challenges traditional notions of fitness and propriety. Much of this Jane vanished when her sister Cassandra burned many of her letters. However, a caustic Jane Austen remains to be appreciated in her novels, juvenilia, and surviving correspondence. With insights afforded by psychoanalysis, Regency history, and evolutionary theory, (and Proust and Casanova and Stendhal), Steve Bachmann recovers a Jane Austen who is unbecoming, adult, entertaining — and truly classic.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Steve Bachmann, AB (Harvard), MFA (UNO), JD (Harvard), has represented many organizations working for social change as an attorney.
