One of the best-loved of English authors, Charles Dickens is revered as a storyteller, social campaigner, and chronicler of his time. He also cared passionately about homemaking: "no man was so inclined naturally to derive his happiness from home affairs," wrote his daughter, Mamie. This book tracks the many places where Dickens lived, from his Portsmouth birthplace and childhood home in Chatham to his last home at Gad's Hill Place in Rochester. The book discusses his travels in England and abroad, which provided settings for his novels, and describes his various houses in London, where he lived for the majority of his life and is the city most closely identified with his fiction.

A valuable resource for anyone with an interest in the settings of Dickens's work, this publication—richly illustrated with archival materials and original photography—gives fascinating insight into the life this great writer by placing Dickens in his favorite domestic contexts.
