<div> <p><b>A brilliantly insightful portrait of Charles Dickens-from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley.</b></p> <p>With delectable wit and characteristic sensitivity, Jane Smiley presents a fresh, illuminating take on the life of Charles Dickens. Smiley naturally finds a kindred spirit in the author of such classics as <i>Great Expectations</i> and <i>A Christmas Carol</i>, who was not only a prolific writer but also one of the first modern celebrities. She offers interpretations of many of Dickenss major works, exploring his narrative techniques and his innovative voice and themes. Smileys <i>Charles Dickens</i> is at once a perceptive profile of the great master and a fascinating meditation on the writing life.</p> </div
