Hitchens on Dickens

The 200th anniversary of Charles John Huffam “Boz” Dickens’ birth is creeping up and will be celebrated here at the Merc with, if I have anything to do with it, Dickens punch.  You can begin celebrating his life and work, as well as that of the late great Hitch, with Hitchens’ ultimate piece in Vanity Fair on the vastly popular and prolific Victorian scribblerA good way to spend a winter day while, in the words of Rizzo the Rat’s chum in A Muppet Christmas Carol, “our assets are frozen”.
