William Deresiewicz discusses and signs A Jane Austen Education

A self-styled intellectual rebel dedicated to writers such as James Joyce and Joseph Conrad, Deresiewicz never thought Jane Austen's novels would have anything to offer him. But when a professor assigned Emma, something extraordinary happened: Austen's devotion to the everyday and her belief in the value of ordinary lives changed the way Deresiewicz interacted with the world around him. Along the way, he was amazed to discover that the people in his life developed the depth and richness of literary characters - that his own life had suddenly acquired all the fascination of a novel. His real education had finally begun.
