Publisher's Summary

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to The Old Curiosity Shop narrated by Anton Lesser.

Death, innocence, sacrifice and corruption  - The Old Curiosity Shop is vintage Dickens. Provoking an unprecedented outpouring of public grief when it was first published, it follows the story of Little Nell and her feckless grandfather. Forced to leave their magical shop of curiosities in London, they are pursued across the English countryside by the grotesquely evil dwarf Quilp. They escape  - but at what cost?

Part tragedy, part allegory, this is Dickens at his most intense; drawing on his own experiences, he weaves a story of extraordinary emotional power.
