Description
In 1837, the 25-year-old Charles Dickens was asked to rewrite the memoirs of the world-renowned clown and pantomime Joseph Grimaldi, presented here in a handsome, pocket-sized edition. Born to a family of comic performers, Grimaldi was trained as a harlequin at the age of two and was onstage the following year. Grimaldi's fame as a pantomime clown was unequalled, and he is credited for introducing the tradition of audience participation, of poking fun at spectators, and establishing the typical costume of the modern "whiteface" clown. In his afterword, Richard Findlater recounts the original manuscript's wayward path from composition to publication.
