Charles Dickens was one of the great chroniclers of London life. From the colorful chaos of dances and gin-shops to the sparse destitution of the pawnshop and the penitentiary, he captured the grime and the glory of the English capital with singular brilliance.
Orphans and beggars, lord mayors and murderers, actors, criminals, cab drivers and prostitutes; all rub shoulders in this wonderful selection from Sketches by Boz.
Chosen and introduced by the playwright J. B. Priestley, these thirteen marvelous sketches are accompanied by George Cruikshank's evocative illustrations.
