Better late than never

Exciting news! A mere four years after publication, Among the Janeites has earned a review in the New York Times Book Review -- and by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Jane Smiley, no less! Smiley calls the book a "playful exploration of Austen obsession. . . . amusing and sometimes mind-boggling," with a "light but precise" tone. I'm not quite sure why the book caught the NYT's eye now and not back in 2013, but I'll take it. . .
