Description - The Bedside, Bathtub and Armchair Companion to Dickens by Brian Murray

Charles Dickens belongs to an exclusive literary club: he was immensely popular when he was alive, and his work has never fallen out of fashion. His books have been in print for over 140 years, and are widely read and admired every day, the world over. His larger than life style and over-the-top characters have inspired countless authors; his work has been adapted into plays, film and television - there are over 25 versions of "A Christmas Carol" alone!A vital part of English literature's history, Charles Dickens is a natural choice for Continuum's Bedside treatment, and Brian Murray, an expert in Dickens and 19th- and 20th-century British literature, is the perfect tour guide into the wonderful world of all things Dickensian. Featuring countless fun facts and 175 illustrations - including photos, stills, and cartoons - this is the perfect gift for the literature lover in your life.
