    I bought a paperback copy of her biography of Jane Austen at a secondhand bookshop a few years ago. It was published by Indigo, an imprint of the Cassell Group, in 1996, with a copyrighted postscript by Elizabeth Jenkins dated 1986.

      We had a fascinating talk about Elizabeth Jenkins and the biography. I must re-read it as it is many years since I last read it.

        Elizabeth Jenkins book was the first I ever read about Jane Austin way back in the late 1940s.

          You’d have enjoyed the talk we had at JASA, Joan. Do you still have your copy?
