»One has always been hoping that a biographer such as Elsemarie Maletzke would dedicate such a great book to the quiet wonder of Jane Austen.«
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

»Maletzke‘s book puts you in the mood for wanting to read even the lesser known novels by Jane Austen.«

»Not only does Elsemarie Maletzke report about history of literature but also is she a remarkable story-teller speaking in an unsolemn, amusing tone which suits her British subject perfectly.«
Der Tagesspiegel

»This biography is most readable, lively and stimulating. And whoever, after having read it, is still not in the mood for Jane Austen‘s novels just can not be helped.«
Norddeutscher Rundfunk
