Brief Lives: Wilkie Collins, Paperback / softback Book

Brief Lives: Wilkie Collins Paperback / softback

Part of the Brief Lives series


A close friend and collaborator of Charles Dickens, Collins secured his own fame with sensational novels that feature intricate legal plots, mistaken identities, and complex crimes.

Boldly challenging the mores of Victorian society by maintaining two families and shunning the institution of marriage, Collins was also one of the most unconventional public figures of his day.

His life story, succinctly told in this elegant biography, promises to instruct and to entertain.
