Review: "Jane Austen: A Life" by Claire Tomalin

Of all of the Jane Austen biographies I've read, and re-read in the past month or so in England, none of them compare to Claire Tomalin's "Jane Austen: A Life  with its depth of research, rich historical and textual analysis and beautiful writing. If you only ever read one biography of Jane Austen, make sure it is this one. I'm also excited to read her biography of Charles Dickens, which I've been told is just as brilliant.
