Charles Dickens was a phenomenon: a hardworking journalist, the father of ten children, a tireless traveller, but most of all a great novelist. At the age of twelve he was sent to work in a blacking factory. From these unpromising beginnings, he rose to scale all the social and literary heights. When he died, the world mourned, and he was buried - against his wishes - in Westminster Abbey. Yet the brilliance concealed a divided character: a republican, he disliked America; sentimental about the family in his writings, he took up passionately with a young actress; usually generous, he cut off his impecunious children. Claire Tomalin paints an unforgettable portrait of Dickens, capturing brilliantly the complex character of this great genius.
