Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens are the two most celebrated authors of the Victorian age, yet both were involved in scandal and affairs.
Andrew Lycett, whose new biography of Wilkie Collins explores the author's life and works and emphasises his strong connections with Kent, and Peter Clark, author of Dickens: London into Kent, discusses the novelists' relationship, their double lives and their links to the country.
Andrew Lycett is a leading British biographer. Following an earlier career as a foreign correspondent, he has written a number of acclaimed lives of people including Ian Fleming, Rudyard Kipling, Dylan Thomas, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and, most recently Wilkie Collins. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
Peter Clark has translated novels from Arabic and has written books on Istanbul, Wilfred Thesiger and Marmaduke Pickthall.
