HAVISHAM IS THE ASTONISHING PRELUDE TO CHARLES DICKENS'S GREAT EXPECTATIONS.

Before she became the immortal and haunting Miss Havisham of Great Expectations, she was Catherine, a young woman with all of her dreams ahead of her. Spry, imperious, she is the daughter of a wealthy brewer. But she is never far from the smell of hops and the arresting letters on the brewhouse wall—HAVISHAM—a reminder of all she owes to the family name and the family business.

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


If that feels closer to Virginia Woolf than Dickens, then perhaps we’ve stumbled on both Frame’s natural terrain and his next assignment: recreating the early years of Mrs. Dalloway. What a lark. What a plunge.

Don't be afraid to give this book a try, especially if you're a Dickens fan!

The reader can only recognize that this Catherine Havisham deserves more than either Dickens or Frame allows her.
