An informative, gossipy and surprisingly engaging
6-page exploration of the life of Charles Dickens, including his up-and-down relationship with the U.S. press
, his inexcusable behavior
during his messy and very public separation from his wife, the "histrionic flair"
of his performance career, and, of course, his works, including the one George Bernard Shaw called "a more seditious book than Das Kapital
." Lots of interesting images, too.
