Norrie Epstein - whose The Friendly Shakespeare was called spirited, informative and provocative by The New York Times - strips away the polite veneer of Victorian society to reveal Dickenss life and times in all their squalor and glory, from his childhood days toiling in a blacking factory while his father languished in debtors prison, to his first visit to the United States, where he was hailed as the greatest living writer.

The Friendly Dickens includes an illuminating guide to all of Dickenss works and lively appreciations of characters both major and minor, interviews with aficionados from Patrick Stewart to biographer Phyllis Rose, eye-catching illustrations, copious quotations, a highly opinionated filmography and informative sidebars on almost every page.
