    Described by Matthew Sweet in the Guardian as 'a book full of bright new hard-won details', Andrew Lycett's meticulously researched biography of Wilkie Collins sheds new light on aspects of the author's life and work including the sources and popular success of his 'sensation novels', notably The Woman in White; his friendship with Dickens; his public image as a respectable bachelor clubman; and his complex and secret domestic arrangements involving two mistresses and several children.
