I had to track this one down via inter-library loan. It disappointed me because I guess what I was looking for was more of a psychoanalysis of Dickens and why he saw women as he did. I also confirmed via this book what I already knew: he had NO USE for older women. They were just ugly old crones--or worse--to him.
