In his bestselling What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew, Daniel Pool brilliantly unlocked the mysteries of the English novel. Now, in his long-awaited Dickens' Fur Coat and Charlotte's Unanswered Letters, Pool turns his keen eye to England's great Victorian novelists themselves, to reveal the surprisingly human private side of their public genius. Dickens' Fur Coat and Charlotte's Unanswered Letters explores the outrageous publicity stunts, bitter rivalries, rows, and general mayhem perpetrated by this group of supposedly prudish - yet remarkably passionate and eccentric - authors and publishers. Against a vividly painted backdrop of London as the small world it once was, the book brings on the players in the ever-changing, brave new world of big publishing - a world that gave birth to author tours, big advances, "trashy" fiction, flashy bookstalls in train stations (for Victorian "airport fiction"), celebrity libel suits, bogus blurbs, even paper recycling (as unsold volumes reappeared as trunk linings, fish wrappings, and fertilizer).… (mais)

A really interesting treatise on the rise of the novel in Victorian England -- Dickens, the Brontes, Thackery, etc. And interesting little tidbits about the principals involved. ( )

I had thought, judging from the title and dust jacket description, that this would just be a book of juicy, entertaining gossip about Victorian novelists. Well, certainly there was a lot of that in there -- did you know William Thackeray had a crazy wife he had to keep locked up? -- but this book is ever so much more than that.

It covers the development of the Victorian novel and the publishing industry over the 19th century. In the early 1800s, public libraries in England were nonexistent. Books were so rare and expensive that only wealthy people actually owned them and instead they were rented from circulating libraries (sort of like Blockbuster for books). The circulating libraries were very powerful and had an iron grip on the publishing industry. By the end of the century, books had become cheap and were sold at railroad stalls, and everyone was reading them. And it was a long, sometimes dramatic ride in between.

I learned a great deal more from this book than I had expected to. I feel richer for having read it. ( )
