Imagined by one of the world's foremost Dickens scholars, and with a Foreword by Peter Ackroyd, this fictionalised conversation presents the essential biography of Britain's most beloved novelist.
Author of some of the most memorable characters in all of literature, Dickens is widely considered the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His work is timeless, transcending generations, while he continues to be one of the most adapted writers in all of history. During his lifetime, Dickens attracted international adulation on an unprecedented scale. He cultivated a genial intimacy with his readers, and after he died many of his admirers felt that they had lost a personal friend.
