DICKENS, C.: Selections from Sketches by Boz (Abridged)

Dickens’s renowned skill for keen social observation and, more specifically, his incredibly detailed knowledge of London and its theatres, prisons and inns, is perfectly realised in Sketches by Boz. Many of the themes he goes on to explore in his great novels are foreshadowed in this early collection of short accounts that centre on London and its inhabitants.
