"Combining original scholarship on Collins's negotiation of the Victorian literary marketplace with lively readings of his fiction that also give a clear sense of recent trends both in Collins criticism and work on nineteenth-century popular fiction, the book serves equally well as an introduction to or an update on Collins and his literary and cultural contexts." - Lyn Pykett, Aberystwyth University
