In this superb biography, Claire Tomalin gives full measure to Dickens's heroic stature - his huge virtues both as a writer and as a human being - while observing his failings in both respects with an unblinking eye. Reviewing the book in the Guardian, William Boyd wrote, 'what is so valuable about this biography is the palpable sense of the man himself that emerges'. Claire Tomalin is an award- winning biographer whose other subjets include Thomas Hardy and Samuel Pepys.
