A biography of a Victorian-era woman who grew up as the daughter of novelist Charles Dickens—and found a creative career of her own.

Katey Dickens was born into a house of turbulent celebrity and grew up surrounded by fascinating, famous, and infamous people. From a very young age, she knew her vocation was to be an artist.

Lucinda Hawksley charts the life of a celebrated portrait painter who redefines our preconceptions about Victorian women. Living to be almost ninety, Katey survived an unconventional marriage, love affairs, heartbreak, depression, and the challenges of being a female artist in a male-dominated era.

Compelling and illuminating, this biography of Katey Dickens tells the story of a spirited woman who found fame at the center of the first celebrity phenomenon; it also uncovers the reality of what it was like to be a child of Charles and Catherine Dickens.
