Our mutual friend, no. 19-20Public
Last complete novel completed by Charles Dickens and is one of his most sophisticated works, combining savage satire with social analysis. In the opening chapters a body is found in the Thames and identified as that of John Harmon, a young man recently returned to London to receive his inheritance. Were he alive, his father's will would require him to marry Bella Wilfer, a beautiful, mercenary girl whom he had never met. Instead, the money passes to the working-class Boffins, and the effects spread into various corners of London society. Issued monthly from May 1864 to November 1865 in illustrated green paper covers. Chapters 12-17: Chapter 12. The passing shadow -- Chapter 13. Showing how the golden dustman helped to scatter dust -- Chapter 14. Checkmate to the friendly move -- Chapter 15. What was caught in the traps that were set -- Chapter 16. Persons and things in general -- [Chapter 17] Chapter the last. The voice of society
