An entertaining and illuminating discourse on the many pubs, both real and imaginary that featured in Charles Dickens' books.In fact the author has traced 166 inns from Dickens' works and each of these is listed and where possible identified along with the particular Dickens book that it featured in plus the extract from Dickens concerning the said inn. Preceding these extractions are brief outlines of what inns and beer were like in Dickens' times.Written in the author's inimitable easy yet learned style with fitting sketches and the odd photo.
