    JANE AUSTENS GUIDE TO LIFE : THOUGHTFUL LESSONS FOR THE MODERN WOMAN

    Title: JANE AUSTENS GUIDE TO LIFE : THOUGHTFUL LESSONS FOR THE MODERN WOMAN
    Author: SMITH LORI
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Jane Austen has become our patron saint of romance, our goddess of happy endings. Her name is synonymous with romantic sighs, period costumes, and the ideal of what love should be. But if she could give us advice about life and love, what would she tell us? What would she make of Match.com, of our Real Housewives, or of our obsession with finding The One?

    Austen's stories give us relationship advice that still works today, but her life offers us so much more wisdom than just that pertaining to love. In our fame-obsessed culture, it's refreshing to think that Austen preferred to remain anonymous. Ironically, Jane Austen--master of love stories--never married and can teach us something about being single. She also endured many painful circumstances and managed them with grace and humor.

    In this light biography and guide, author Lori Smith surmises about Austen's sensible advice for twenty-first-century women--on everything from living our dreams, being a woman of substance, finding a good man, managing money, and much more. As such an astute student of human nature, Austen can teach us an awful lot about ourselves and about what it means to live well.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The follow-up to the bestselling Letters of Note - this time editor Shaun Usher turns his hand to lists.


    Humans have been making lists for even longer than they've been writing letters. They are the shorthand for what really matters to us: our hopes and aspirations; likes and dislikes; rules for living and loving; records of our memories and reminders of the things we want to do before we die.
    Just as he did with Letters of Note, Shaun Usher has trawled the world's archives to produce a rich visual anthology that stretches from ancient times to present day. From a to-do list of Leonardo da Vinci's to Charles Darwin on the pros and cons of marriage or Julia Child's list of possible titles for what would later become an American cooking bible, Lists of Note is a constantly surprising A-Z of what makes us human.
