First of all a Happy New Year to you all and a welcome to my new follower Anne.
I just wanted to share with you my new book Charles Dickens: A Life - written by Claire Tomalin and published by Penguin which arrived from Amazon yesterday. It’s yummy, and as it’s been raining non- stop all day here in Essex, have managed to dip into it on and off most of the afternoon. Such an indulgence but well worth it. The book is in hardback and includes maps of where Dickens lived, worked and socialised in London as well as Gad’s Hill and Rochester. There is also a ‘Cast list’ of people he was connected with during his life as well as many photographs and illustrations. A book to be recommended.
