Review:

"I am reading The Old Curiosity Shop by Dickens for the first time. His characters are marvellous, his insights wonderful and I'm astonished that I managed to miss this one before. Quilp and his wife and Kit confirm my view that Dickens is the father of magic realism. You don't expect reality but you get something bigger and better" (Ruth Rendell)

"One of Charles Dickens's darkest, most melodramatic novels" ( Daily Mail)

"It could be argued that The Old Curiosity Shop changed the expression of grief in the English-speaking world" (Peter Ackroyd The Times)

"I have read so much Dickens that I can almost predict where a story is leading from the beginning. But The Old Curiosity Shop is more mysterious. This Christmas I read it again didn't get out of bed for two days as I followed the adventures of Little Nell and the evil dwarf Quilp" (Pete Waterman)

"I just love the Marchioness and just loathe, with delicious pantomime venom, Daniel Quilp" ( Mavis Cheek)

Book Description:

'I bought it, read and loved it' Derek Jacobi
