CHARLES by Victoria Lincoln

An fictional biography is a very personal sort of recreation of Charles Dickens from his childhood to the point when he was midway through Little . This will carry for old Dickensians and newcomers to his fold, a lure that standard biographies, critical works, collections et al will fail to inspire. One finds through this lingering, loving book, new lights, new sensitivity, clues as to how the young Dickens came to be the great Dickens. There is also authentic period flavor.
