Dickens' London is a thing of legend. The sense of place was of the utmost importance for Dickens, and nowhere is more synonymous with his name than London. The most splendid of all his characters, the city was the subject of scrupulous research: Dickens spent several hours a day exploring its streets and inhabitants. The pieces collected here reveal London to be the primary inspiration for one of the geniuses of English literature.

Charles Dickens (1812 1870) is one of England’s most important literary figures. His works enjoyed enormous success in his day and are still regarded as among the most popular and widely read classics of all time.Review:
"Brief yet evocative. . . what is particularly striking is Dickens's boundless curiosity, his restless search for the city's "deserted nooks and corners". . . . In such essays, London is not just a workaday place, but the scene of wonders." —Guardian
