• A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
With more than 200 million copies sold, it ranks amongst the most famous works of literary fiction. Set during the French Revolution—a time of great change and great danger, when injustice was met with vengeance and there was no distinction between the innocent and the guilty. Against this historical backdrop, Dickens’ story of adventure and courage unfolds. The 45-chapter novel was originally published in 31 weekly installments, from April 1859 to November 1859, in Dickens’s literary periodical titled All the Year Round.
