Join Simon Callow as he reads excerpts from his exciting new book, Charles Dickens and the Great Theatre of the World. Simon says: "When you find a writer that you love it's like finding a best friend. Dickens never ceases to delight me. There's something in him which chimes with me: the energy; the scope; the generosity; the endless inventiveness of it. There is in Dickens the spirit of the medieval carnival that just deeply turns me on. That sense of the world as one big body and a celebration and embrace of all its grotesqueness, the ugliness, the smell, the sweat."
