CLAIRE Tomalin will talk about her new book Charles Dickens: A Life, on October 27 at Ely Cathedral. Charles Dickens was a phenomenon: a demonically hard-working journalist, the father of 10 children, a tireless walker and traveller, a supporter of liberal social causes, but most of all a great novelist – the creator of characters who live immortally in the English imagination such as the Artful Dodger, Mr Pickwick, Pip, David Copperfield, Little Nell, Lady Dedlock, and many more.

Claire Tomalin, winner of Whitbread Book of the Year for Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self, paints an unforgettable portrait of Dickens, capturing brilliantly the complex character of this great genius.
