Review:

"Dickens's chilling tale of murder and betrayal" (Sunday Times)

"Kafka's favourite book, a tour de force that mixes grand scale and minutely-observed, perfectly-heard reality. Incomparable set-pieces (that opening! spontaneous combustion!) and dialogue" (James Hawes)

"I keep on reading it in order to discover how to write a novel" (John Mortimer) --John Mortimer

"Bleak House reads like an encyclopedia not only of its time and place but of us" (Elizabeth Kostova) --Elizabeth Kostova

"Bleak House is the literati's favourite Dickens. It's one of the few stories that has modern resonance: the tale of a never-ending court case can be seen -if you squint -as the precursor of Kafka and Orwell" (A.A. Gill) --A.A. Gill

Book Description:

Everyone knows Dickens' Bleak House as a literary classic. But how many know it as the first detective novel too? Introducing Crime Classics, from Atlantic Books.
