in consequence of the missive, Ch 1: A mature Miss Austen already struts out her sense of humor, penned by jeffrey
This was what struck me on this reading (I've lost count of how many times I've read it). Sir Walter is so extremely unlikable, although funny in a sad sort of way. I almost wonder if the joke is rather elaborate: since she was "only Anne", Sir Walter's vanity is so great it even overwhelms a book about his own daughter! That could be my own bizarre fourth-wall humor coming into play, however. :-)
