Description
Also the biographer of Pre-Raphaelite artists' model Lizzie Siddal, as well as Charles Dickens himself, Lucinda Hawksley here gives us the life of Dickens's daughter Katey, who refused to be eclipsed by her father and fought to establish herself as an artist. Dickens lovingly nicknamed her "Lucifer Box" because of her fiery temper, and in many ways Katey was ahead of her time, becoming renowned as a portrait painter and exhibiting regularly at the Royal Academy. Hawksley sheds light on Katey's extraordinary life both as a Dickens and an artist.

"The personality that comes through is ardent and likeable.... [The] biography has the distinction of making you want to know more about its subject, rather than, as so often, less."Sunday Times (London)

"Highly regarded artist with something of a flirty reputation ... the feisty Katey as Lucinda Hawksley makes clear in her gripping biography could not have been less like the drippy and insipid love-object Victorian heroines of Dickens's novels.... In old age, Katey entertained a stream of celebrities at her small London flat, including J.M. Barrie and George Bernard Shaw.... Katey's [story] is fascinating and enthralling."Daily Mail (London)
