Quadrapheme on “Young Jane Austen”

Quadrapheme’s Georgina Parfitt discusses with author Lisa Pliscou the process of recreating Jane Austen’s early life in Young Jane Austen: Becoming a Writer. 

“The book is a stocking-filler size,” notes Parfitt, “with a heavily decorative style, the pages adorned with curleque borders and floral backdrops, but don’t let its gift-worthiness fool you. Just as Young Jane was a profound wit in a small package, so the book surprises.”
