Dickens’ exceptional second novel tells the story of orphan boy Oliver Twist, who escapes the misery of the workhouse only to fall in with a gang of London crooks, led by the legendary Fagin.
The literary masterpiece uses dark humour to shine a light on the real poverty blighting London life in the 19th century, as Dickens – himself once a child labourer – explains in the rare foreword to this Apostrophe Books edition.
