Charles Dickens: a life

In The Mystery of Charles Dickens on the New York Review of Books blog, Joyce Carol Oates discusses extensively Claire Tomalin’s biography of Dickens: Charles Dickens: a life, London : Viking, 2011.

Claire Tomalin’s biography is likely to be one of the definitive Dickens biographies in its seamless application of “the life” to “the art”

“The narrative is present-tense; the mood is suspenseful”

“Dickens the greatest of English novelists? Few would contest that he is the most English of great English novelists, and that his most accomplished novels are works of surpassing genius.”

The Blue Mountains Library holds 2 copies of this definitive biography of the greatest English novelist! Charles Dickens: a life by Claire Tomalin
