On the Sofa with Jane Austen is a collection of essays that first appeared in the Regency World magazine. They celebrate the quirkiest corners and cleverest contrivances of Jane Austen's art. The twenty-one topics range from coiffure to crime, from gossip to grandmothers. The title comes from the first essay, but it is also an invitation to spend time with a well-loved author in a relaxed and intimate way.

The essays are:

  • On the Sofa
  • The Hair was Curled
  • Lady Bertram's Fringe
  • A Very White World
  • The Silence of Mr Perry
  • Plump Cheeks and Thick Ankles
  • Reading Aloud
