Flamboyant, eccentric, driven by nervous energy, Wilkie Collins was one of the great storytellers of the Victorian era. Peter Ackroyd charts Collins’s life and career from his childhood as the son of a well-known artist through his early struggles as a writer to his lifelong friendship with Dickens, and persuasively encourages readers to explore his less well-known works as well as the two masterpieces The Moonstone and The Woman in White. American cut pages. Felt tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
