   At her loss of life in 1817, Jane Austen left the area six of the main liked novels written in English—but her shortsighted kin destroyed the majority of her letters; and if she saved any diaries, they didn't live on her.   Now acclaimed biographer Claire Tomalin has crammed the gaps within the list, making a remarkably clean and convincing portrait of the girl and the author.  
   While so much Austen biographers have accredited the statement of Jane's brother Henry that "My expensive Sister's existence was once now not a lifetime of events," Tomalin exhibits that, to the contrary, Austen's short lifestyles was once fraught with upheaval.   Tomalin offers exact and soaking up bills of Austen's ill-fated love for a tender Irishman, her common travels and prolonged visits to London, her shut friendship with a cosmopolitan cousin whose French husband met his demise at the guillotine, her brothers' naval provider within the Napoleonic wars and within the colonies, and therefore shatters the parable of Jane Austen as a sheltered and homebound spinster whose wisdom of the area used to be constrained to the view from a Hampshire village.
