Jane Austen's Guide to Modern Life's Dilemmas: Answers to Your Most Burning Questions About Life, Love, Happiness (and What to Wear) by Rebecca Smith
If you're a Jane Austen fan, then you might have wondered how the author would navigate the mystifying societal rules of modern life. But wonder no more, as here's the answer. Jane Austen's Guide to Modern Life's Dilemmas deftly draws on Jane Austen's books, letters and early writing to supply readers with wise and wonderful counsel for living well in the 21st century.
Dip into a range of topics, from love and relationships to careers, fashion and travel; or look up specific issues, such as whether you can politely 'unfriend' someone on Facebook, or seemingly timeless quandries, such as whether a man can really change in a relationship.


Written by Rebecca Smith (Austen's great-great-great-great-great niece and writer in residence at Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton), this sensible, sublime and funny book is perfect for Austen fans or sticklers for etiquette in today's mad world.
