About Book

With questions ranging from the deliciously unexpected (*Who's the only person in literary history both to have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize and to have played a girlfriend of Ken Barlow's in Coronation Street?) to the reassuringly canonical (**Dickens's fourth novel was the first he'd published not to have the main character's name in the title.
