From the Introduction: "'Vanity Fair', 'Middlemarch', 'Great Expectations', 'Bleak House', and the other great Victorian classics - we take them to the beach, to the country for long weekends, or to more or less distant locales on those unending plane trips. Why? For pleasure sometimes, perhaps, too, partly out of guilt at the unfinished corners of our liberal education, and no doubt even merely because, like Everest, they are there. They remain touchstones of our sense of literary worth and of what endures in fiction." This book looks into the industry that produced Great Victorian Novels and the shared business of publishers, writers, and powerful book distributors. Chapters include: ¿ Part 1 "A Low, Cheap Form of Publication": Charles Dickens, the Coming of 'Pickwick', and Murder by the Book; ¿ Part 2 "It Would Never Suit the Circulating Libraries": 'Jane Eyre', 'Vanity Fair', and the Three-Volume Straitjacket; ¿ Part 3 "What Shall I Be Without My Father?": Women Novelists in the London of Dickens and Thackeray, the Coming of Real Money, and the Novel Becomes Respectable; ¿ Part 4 "Do Let Me Abuse Mr. Newby": Literary Executors, Gossip Columnists, and the Emergence of the Novelist as Celebrity ¿ Part 5 "Terror to the End": The Sensation Novel, Dickens "Dreadfully Shattered," and Anthony Trollope Gets a Traveling Bag and an Audience ¿ Part 6 "We Are a Novel-Reading Country": 'Middlemarch' and Mr. Mudie's Library, the Novel Apparently Triumphant, but Henry James Fails, Ominously, to Write a Happy Ending." With B/W photographs and illustrations throughout. 282 pp Author of 'What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew'

Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: It was the Best of Times, it was the Worst of Times, but most of all, as Daniel Pool reveals in this delightful new book, it was a time of surprisingly outrageous behavior. Dickens' Fur Coat and Charlotte's Unanswered Letters plunks the reader down in the middle of the London book world to expose the madcap shenanigans, rows, rivalries, and general mayhem perpetrated by the supposedly prudish Victorians. We see Dickens on his first American book tour having bits of his fur coat snipped off by manic fans, romantic rumors swirling around Thackeray and Charlotte Bronte, Anthony Trollope scheming with Thomas Hardy in an attempt to get more money for his novels, and Bulwer Lytton (of "It was a dark and stormy night" fame) apparently plotting to poison his wife!An eye-opening cultural history and a marvelously entertaining read, this is sure to be a gift book all fans of Victoriana will delight in."Anyone interested in the juicier bits of literary history will enjoy this book". -- Washington Post"If you've ever shed a tear over a Dickens novel or sighed over Heathcliff or Cathy, or if you just love what Henry James called those 'huge, floppy, nineteenth century English novels, ' you'll relish Dickens' Fur Coat and Charlotte's Unanswered Letters". -- Chicago Tribune"Delightfully entertaining . Great Books meets celebrity gossip: a rare, literate entertainment". -- Kirkus Reviews

With publishing empires swallowing smaller house for breakfast and agents swiping authors left, right, and center, the modern book industry might seem an insider's paradise, an aspiring author's nightmare, a reader's Goldberg contraption. Alas, according to Daniel Pool, 'twas ever thus. Money, advertising, publicity, blurbs, and the author's charisma were just as central to Victorian bookselling as they are now. Focusing particularly on Dickens, Charlotte Bront?, George Eliot, and Thackeray, the author builds up a portrait of cutthroat times and cutthroat measures. Readers will be particularly taken with the author's account of the rise of the serial novel--and Dickens's frustration with the form. (Something Flaubert quickly copped to. After finishing The Pickwick Papers, he commented to George Sand, "Some bits are magnificent, but what a defective structure.") And the quotations Daniel Pool presents, from the epigraphs to Virginia Woolf's assessment on the final page, make Dickens' Fur Coat essential social history. 18th century,19th century,education and reference,gothic and romantic,history,history and criticism,language arts,literary,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections History, Harpercollins
