Summary
  • "One does not need to have read a single word of The Pickwick Papers to be enthralled by the story of how this extraordinary novel came to be. The creation and afterlife of this masterpiece is the subject of Stephen Jarvis's novel ... This vast, intricately constructed, indeed Dickensian work is at once [an] ... homage to a much-loved book, tracing its genesis and subsequent history in ... detail, and a damning indictment of how an ambitious young writer expropriated another man's ideas and then engaged in an elaborate cover-up of The Pickwick Papers' true origin"--
  • Charles Dickens' novel, The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, made Mr. Pickwick and his Cockney manservant, Sam Weller, immortal. But did the origin of these characters actually lie with a brilliant, erratic, misanthropic illustrator named Robert Seymour? Together they created a worldwide phenomenon-- and the tale of its creation is full of improbable reversals, skulduggery, betrayal, and valor
