Charles Dickens & Wilkie Collins -
A Writing Bromance
When Wilkie Collins was recruited into Charles Dickens’ amateur theatre group in 1851, they at once took to each other.
Dickens at 39 years old was in need of a good time, and Collins at 27, was the man who could provide that much needed excitement.
In a friendship that lasted until the death of Dickens in 1870, Jak Stringer tells about their trips to Paris to fly kites, a walk around Vesuvius in clouds of sulphurous smoke, the women they loved and the plays that they performed in.
