9780140121360: The Invisible Woman: The Story of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens

This is the story of someone who – almost – wasn’t there; who vanished into thin air. Her names, dates, family and experiences very nearly disappeared from the record for good ...’ Claire Tomalin’s multi-award-winning story of the life of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens is a remarkable work of biography and historical revisionism. It not only returns the neglected actress to her rightful place in history, but provides a compelling and truthful portrait of the great Victorian novelist.

‘A biography of high scholarship and compelling detective work’ Melvyn Bragg, Independent.
