Description
Giving us an uncommonly close-up look at one of the world's most popular and celebrated authors of the past two centuries, this book is a detailed, highly visual tour of the places where Charles Dickens lived, from his Portsmouth birthplace and childhood home in Chatham to his last home back in Kent, at Gad's Hill Place in Rochester. The book also traces his travels in England and abroad to find the locations that inspired the settings in his novels, from Nicholas Nickleby's Yorkshire to the East Anglia of David Copperfield.

"[Hilary] Macaskill presents a captivating landscape, covering everywhere Dickens lived plus all his travels at home and abroad. By placing him within a domestic context, enriched by a wealth of archive illustrations and photographs, the book offers a fresh glimpse of the novelist whose close attention to detail and acute awareness of place was reflected throughout his novels, which brilliantly convey the flavor of home life."Good Book Guide
