Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. The Old Curiosity Shop is an instant bestseller that captured the hearts of the nation. Little Nell Trent lives in the quiet gloom of the old curiosity shop with her ailing grandfather, for whom she cares with selfless devotion. But when they are unable to pay their debts to the lecherous money-lender Daniel Quilp, the shop is seized and they are forced to flee, thrown into a shadowy world in which there seems to be no safe haven.
