This week in the magazine, Anthony Lane reviews "Austenland," one of many films on Jane Austen's work, or in this case, on the fans of her work. Not everyone loves Jane Austen, but her fans definitely include Joshua Rothman, the New Yorker's archive editor, and staff writer Rebecca Mead. They've both written about Jane Austen for newyorker.com, and they recently spoke about the enduring appeal of her books with Sasha Weiss.
