Talk: book now for Claire Tomalin on Charles Dickens

We were lucky enough to catch a talk by Claire Tomalin on Charles Dickens recently at the Southbank and how fun it was.  Having written a biography on Dickens, Tomalin has certainly done her homework and presents him as a conflicted, complex man: a sentimental lover, cruel husband and a vain peacock much beloved by the public.  Tomalin is talking again about Dickens, this time with John Carey for the London School of Economics Literary Festival, so make haste and get your tickets pronto.  NB tickets are now sold out but the LSE do say you can turn up on the day as there are almost always free seats.
