This week’s article of the week is from The New Yorker. Written by Brad Leithauser, “Big Reading: A Hike Through Dickens” details one author’s personal journey as he reads his way through all of Dickens’s collected works. This is quite an extensive undertaking, as Dickens’s fiction titles total more than 9000 pages.
Leithauser is witty, insightful, and a joy to read. He combines his own ideas with the critical eye of an experienced writer and one knowledgeable about the history of Dickens’s works. To top it off, his prose sings with an unforgettable voice.
