'Drawing upon contemporary accounts, Austen's own correspondence, and a detailed reading of the novels, Fullerton presents the reader with a charming insider's guide to a Regency ball.' Good Book Guide 'readers wishing for more details about Austen's ball scenes, for a clearer sense of what would be worn at a ball, what kind of music would be played, and what sort of manners were typical, will want to consult A Dance with Jane Austen.' Times Literary Supplement 'Susannah Fullerton has done her research and written a book that will give much pleasure to anyone interested in the kind of dancing which Jane Austen and her contemporaries enjoyed. Lavishly illustrated, (and the piccies are seriously pretty), the book will tell you all sorts of thngs you didn't realise you wnated to know, while introducing you to a world of swirling, twirling silk and satin designed to advertise the beautiful people on the hunt for a mate.'
