New Biography About Jane Austen Coming in 2013

Inquiring readers, Raquel Sallaberry from Jane Austen em Português has alerted us to the wonderful news:
Harper Collins is pleased to announce it has commissioned The Real Jane Austen [Jane Austen True], a major new biography by Paula Byrne, for publication in 2013. This will be the first substantial biography of Jane Austen's century, and contain a wealth of new research by the author of the bestseller, Mad World and Perdita. The first book by Paula Byrne, a study of Jane Austen and the Theatre was described by Paul Johnson in The Spectator as "the best book on Jane Austen I've read." Paula will offer a glimpse of its innovative approach in a lecture at the Bath Literature Festival on March 5, 2011 (Saturday).
Paula Byrne is the author of Jane Austen and the Theatre, 2007, which was shortlisted for the Theatre Book Prize.
