You're right Gina, this attack is pretty flimsy. As a lover of Dickens I have always thought that the hardest part to swallow was the way he handled the separation with Catherine, the horrible public gaffs he committed in the process, and the deplorable treatment of her for the remainder of his life. If Hitchens truly wanted to portray a dark Dickens he need only go there.

The "Weekly Standard" has a more balanced review of the Slater book, but I'm afraid it's subscriber-only. The magazine can be found at most bookstores, though.
