"No story in the first person was ever better told."

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
"A story of the traumas of sex and class. My favourite moment is the one where Magwitch makes his stumbling way up the shadowy staircase towards an unnerved but unsuspecting Pip: the halting but inexorable rise of the repressed 'from the darkness beneath." --Sarah Waters, author, Fingersmith
"He s a marvellous writer . . . He s very, very good." William Trevor, author, "Cheating at Canasta""
"There is no one Dickens novel I could pick over all the others. Dickens is huge--like the sky. Pick any page of Dickens and it's immediately recognizable as him, yet he might be doing social satire, or farce, or horror, or a psychological study of a murderer--or any combination of these." --Susanna Clarke, author, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
"I would always prefer to go get another Dickens off the shelf than pick up a new book by someone I've not read yet . . . I love the tradition of Dickens, where even the most minor walk-on characters are twitching and particular and alive." --Donna Tartt, author, The Little Friend
"He's a marvellous writer . . . He's very, very good." --William Trevor, author, Cheating at Canasta
