Charles Dickens's beloved characters join him on an adventurous journey that might have been!
Adapted from the collected writing of Charles Dickens, this new book paints a portrait of the celebrated writer as he might have been in his youth, offering a glimpse of his early experiences and the quick wits that helped him survive. For readers unfamiliar with the author's work, this is a remarkable introduction to Dickens's brilliant humor and to his indelible characters, who come to life as soon as we read their names. For Dickens enthusiasts, this is a smart, exhilarating romp through the pages of a timeless writer, celebrating caricatures and scenes too often overlooked. Can we believe what we read? According to Dickens, all of his tales are true reflections of life-fragmentary and tentative, and highly improbable. Over one hundred period illustrations accompany the text throughout, depicting the London of Dickens in his early years and presenting his characters as they appeared in the work of artists he inspired.
