    Dickens was one of the first true celebrity authors. Thousands of fans in Britain and America eagerly awaited each new installment of his stories, and flocked to see him on his legendary speaking tours. Not only did he create an incredible cast of characters on the page, but he was also a dazzling mimic and storyteller, and he wrote, stage-managed, and acted in plays for the public. Throughout his life, from his childhood performances to his legendarily powerful reading tours, Dickens was fanatical about the stage.

    BookD returns talking to our first ever guest on the show, author and spy man extraordinaire Charles Cumming. Charles talks to me about his new book A Foreign Country, which is the first book in a new series featuring a new character: Thomas Kell. Charles is a brilliant crime and thriller writer, keeping you hooked through the story. He’s no different in the interview because, since the last time we got him in the studio to chat about his work, Cumming has been signed up to write the screen play for Trinity Six which was his first book published by HC towers last year. Hollywood beckons!
