Teenage Writings, Paperback (March 2017)» View all books by Jane Austen
The young Jane Austen was a precocious reader, devouring pulp fiction and classic literature, both of which she soon began to imitate and parody. Three volumes of her vivacious teenage writing survive. Devices and themes which appear subtly in her later fiction run riot here: drunkenness, brawling, sexual misdemeanour, theft, and even murder.
UK Kirkus Review » Emma is about young people trying to find suitable partners and learning to get on with each other. Emotional and sexual attractions are present throughout, though vividly implied or suggested rather than ploddingly gone into. The novel is also very moral: Emma doesn't physically harm her friends, but she does behave selfishly and thoughtlessly and hurts them - and us - quite painfully; she then feels remorse and learns to be more considerate: experiences which - being fairly general - are extremely interesting to read about. No character, no sentence could be cut out without reducing the whole. Funny, acute, and touching, Emma is the best of Jane Austen's novels. (Kirkus UK)

Jane Austen was born in Steventon rectory on 16 December 1775. Her family later moved to Bath, then to Southampton and finally to Chawton in Hampshire. She began writing Pride and Prejudice when she was twenty-two years old. It was originally called First Impressions and was initially rejected by the publishers and only published in 1813 after much revision.
