'His masterpiece among many masterpieces' George Bernard Shaw Amy Dorrit's father is not very good with money. She was born in the Marshalsea debtors' prison and has lived there with her family for all of her twenty-two years, only leaving during the day to work as a seamstress for the forbidding Mrs Clennam. But Amy's fortunes are about to change: the arrival of Mrs Clennam's son Arthur, back from working in China, heralds the beginning of stunning revelations not just about Amy but also about Arthur himself. This edition contains an extended extract fromThe Life of Charles Dickensby his friend John Forster, in which Dickens describes his own family's experience in the Marshalsea prison.
