Dickens and Prince: A Particular Kind of Genius

by Nick Hornby - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241996478 | ISBN 10: 0241996473

'A joyful examination of two artists from different centuries and the unlikely parallels in their life and work' Guardian
 
'An ardent fan letter from Hornby that makes you want to reread Great Expectations whilst listening to Sign o'the Times' Vogue
 
The essential gift for lovers of Prince, Dickens and everyone in between!
 
In Nick Hornby's completely joyous and original new book two great figures share the stage. Charles Dickens and Prince. Two wildly different artists who caught fire and lit up the world in ways no others could. Where did their magic come from? How did they work so hard and produce so much? How did they manage or give in to the restlessness and intensity of their creativity? How did they use it, and did it kill them?
 
With wit, curiosity and deep admiration Nick Hornby traces their extraordinary lives - from their difficult beginnings to the women they fell for to their limitless energy for work, to their money and the movies - and brilliantly illuminates their very particular kind of genius.
 
'I love this. It's smart and funny and elegantly persuasive' Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, author of Becoming Dickens
