Go Pioneers! I'm honored to be included on the virtual wall of Hill-Murray High School alumni, alongside some people and classmates I admire very much. I got a chance to share why I am proud to be a Pioneer.
Prof. Devoney Looser (aka Stone Cold Jane Austen).
Here's the latest on subjects that fire me up: Jane Austen, British women writers, age studies, and roller derby.
I'm happily at work on several projects, including an edition of Sense and Sensibility for Penguin Random House (out 5 Feb 2019), a genuine Jane Austen quotation book, The Daily Jane Austen, for the University of Chicago Press (out fall 2019), and a biography on sister novelists Jane and Anna Maria Porter. When I can elbow my way into it, I also write on roller derby, women, and sports.
