This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Our Mutual Friend" by Charles Dickens. "Yours is a 'spectable calling. To save your 'spectability, it's worth your while to pawn every article of clothes you've got, sell every stick in your house, and beg and borrow every penny you can get trusted with. When you've done that and handed over, I'll leave you. Not afore". "Our Mutual Friend" centres on an inheritance - Old Harmon's profitable dust heaps - and its legatees, young John Harmon, presumed drowned when a body is pulled out of the River Thames, and kindly dustman Mr Boffin, to whom the fortune defaults. With brilliant satire, Dickens portrays a dark, macabre London, inhabited by such disparate characters as Gaffer Hexam, scavenging the river for corpses; enchanting, mercenary Bella Wilfer; the social climbing Veneerings; and the unscrupulous street-trader Silas Wegg. The novel is richly symbolic in its vision of death and renewal in a city dominated by the fetid Thames, and the corrupting power of money. "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

“Deserves More Stars!”

Dickens last completed novel is my favourite. Characters such as the sly Silas Wegg, the haunted Bradley Headstone and the mysterious Doll's Dressmaker are some of best Dickens ever created. The plot is faultless... More

“Muck for Brass”

Dickens, the greatest storyteller of English letters, writes with such atmosphere and affection about our great capital. This, his last full novel, is a bleak, serious and gripping satire on the corrupting power of... More
