Dicken's 200th Birthday

Today is Charles Dicken's 200th birthday. There was a celebration at Westminster Abbey already today where Prince Charles and two of Dicken's descendants placed flowers at his grave. I have long been a fan of this Victorian writer, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol being two of his more well-known books. Little Dorrit, Nicholas Nickelby, and A Tale of Two Cities are among my favorites. I am currently reading a new excellent biography of Dickens by Claire Tomalin. I am not quite half-way through, but the book is a great read.

You can find an interview with Claire Tomalin on A Christmas Carol at the Guardian website "Charles Dickens at 200."
