9780099540694: Our Mutual Friend (Vintage Dickens)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NICK HORNBY

John Harmon returns to England after years in exile to claim his inheritance: a great fortune and a beautiful young woman to whom he is betrothed, but has never met. When Harmon's body is pulled out of the Thames, all of London is fascinated by the mystery of the murdered man and his unclaimed riches. Scavengers, social-climbers, lawyers and teachers, a money-lender and a dolls-dressmaker, men and women both honest and villainous, will all become embroiled in this tale of love and obsession, death and rebirth.

Product Description:

A sophisticated mystery, a love story and a tale of the corruptive power of wealth. This was Dickens....

Review:

" Our Mutual Friend made me want to be a writer" (Zoe Heller Guardian)

"Dickens wasn't just telling a story, but drawing a panoramic picture of his times, full of detail about the way the Victorians lived, loved and thought. Our Mutual Friend is superbly constructed - part social satire, part murder mystery, part love story. It is crowded with memorable characters: the aspirational Veneerings, the playboy lawyer Eugene Wrayburn, and the heroines: giddy-minded Bella Wilfur and saintly Lizzy Hexam" ( Independent)

" Our Mutual Friend disturbs us to the root of our being...terribly great" (John Sutherland)

"Perhaps his greatest work. The great novel of London: dark, wise, unsentimental" (William Boyd Newsweek)

"Charles Dickens is the greatest novelist in the English language" (Peter Ackroyd)
