About the Author

E. J. Clery is a professor of English whose publications include The Rise of Supernatural Fiction, 1762-1800 (1995), Women's Gothic from Clara Reeve to Mary Shelley (2000), The Feminization Debate in Eighteenth-Century England (2004) and Eighteen Hundred and Eleven: Poetry, Protest, and Economic Crisis (2017). In 2013, she was awarded a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship to research Romantic-era women's writing and economic debate.She broadcasts and lectures on gothic literature, Jane Austen and her contemporaries, literary history and the cultural history of economics. Working at University of Southampton and the Centre for Early Women's Writing at Chawton Great House, which was formerly owned by Austen's brother Edward, she resides in Winchester, close to the cathedral where Jane Austen is buried.


"E. J. Clery's calmly commanding Jane Austen: The Banker's Sister makes some enlightening juxtapositions of material from the Austen family so as to suggest fresh things about the more familiar biographical arc of the author herself. A critic attuned to the practical pressures and the imaginative possibilities of economics in the period, Clery would be a perfect read for those who cannot understand why Austen should be on the 10." Bharat Tandon, Times Literary Supplement

"In her marvellous new book, Jane Austen: The Banker's Sister, E. J. Clery focuses on Henry and takes stock of undervalued aspects of Jane as well... superb." The Hudson Review

"Jane Austen, The Banker's Sister held me enthralled [...] It's full of exciting new information about Jane Austen's banker brother Henry, and therefore Jane herself. The linking of brother and sister as optimistic, courageous, even speculative fellow-spirits offers new insights about the woman we thought we knew. Clery's genial, accessible, and original book is a must read." Jocelyn Harris, author of Satire, Celebrity, and Politics in Jane Austen

"Considering how central a role economic considerations play in Jane Austen's novels (and her life) I'm amazed that no one seems to have written a book on this topic, until now. This work is a valuable and fascinating addition to what we know about Jane Austen." The Jane Austen Project

"Clery's masterful and scholarly interpretation of Austen's family dynamics, political links, and financial successes and failures provides an interesting and fresh approach to the study of this illustrious novelist's life and legacy." New York Journal of Books
