On London, Paperback Book

On London Paperback

Edited by Peter Orford

Part of the On series


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.
