9780099561422: Oliver Twist: Centenary Cover 1

"This ain't the shop for justice."
—The Artful Dodger
 
Oliver is an orphan living on the dangerous London streets with no one but himself to rely on. Fleeing from poverty and hardship, he falls in with a criminal street gang who will not let him go, however hard he tries to escape. In Oliver Twist, Dickens graphically conjures up the capital's underworld, full of prostitutes, thieves and lost and homeless children, and gives a voice to the disadvantaged and abused.

From the Back Cover:

One of the most swiftly moving and unified of Charles Dickens' great novels, Oliver Twist is also famous for its recreation through the splendidly realized figures of Fagin, Nancy, the Artful Dodger, and the evil Bill Sikes--of the vast London under--world of pickpockets, thieves, prostitutes, and abandoned children.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A baby is born in the humble backstreets of a nameless town. His mother, who is not wearing a wedding ring, dies soon after the birth and her child is given into the care of the local orphanage. Hardly an unusual story, and yet young Oliver Twist is by no means an ordinary boy. He will escape the drudgery of the workhouse, travel to London and be initiated into to a gang of petty crooks. He will find himself at the centre of a criminal plot and an infamous murder, the object of hope, fear, despair and unexpected goodness. This is the story peopled by thieves and prostitutes, coloured by violence and neglect, and redeemed by the innocence of one boy searching for a home. Bookseller Inventory # AWC9780099561422
