Some review comments on Susannah Fullerton’s Jane & I: A Tale of Austen Addiction.
Donna Fletcher Crow, author“Jane and I by Susannah Fullerton, who has been President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia for over 20 years, is a delight from the moment one opens the cover to discover the lovely Regency-style end-papers. This is a beautifully produced book throughout with lots of full-color photographs. Best of all, though, is the story of how a little girl who loved to read became an ardent Janeite and turned her love of literature into a full time career that has taken her around the world. At so many stages in Susannah Fullerton’s story I wanted to shout, “Yes! That’s my story, too. That’s just how it was for me.” I am sure many readers will feel the same.”
“I don’t know which to admire most: the book-filled life of Susannah Fullerton, or her beguiling account of it. Crossing continents and embracing multiple authors – though Jane Austen reigns supreme – this is a vivid and original memoir for lovers of our literary heritage to savour.” Maggie Lane, Jane Austen expert and author
