Having previously tried my hand at short serial stories collected and reprinted in After Dark and The Queen of Hearts I ventured on my first attempt in this book to produce a sustained work of fiction intended for periodical publication during many successive weeks The experiment proved successful both in this country and in America Two of the characters which appear in these pages Rosamond and Uncle Joseph had the good fortune to find friends everywhere who took a hearty liking to them A more elaborately drawn personage in the story Sarah Leeson was I think less generally understood The idea of tracing in this character the influence of a heavy responsibility on a naturally timid woman whose mind was neither strong enough to bear it nor bold enough to drop it altogether was a favorite idea with me at the time and is so much a favorite still that I privately give Sarah Leeson the place of honor in the little portrait gallery which my story contains Perhaps in saying this I am only acknowledging in other words that the parents of literary families share the well known inconsistencies of parents in general and are sometimes unreasonably fond of the child who has always given them the most trouble Wilkie Collins January, The Moonstone is a page turner writes Carolyn Heilbrun It catches one up and unfolds its amazing story through the recountings of its several narrators all of them enticing and singular Wilkie Collins s spellbinding tale of romance theft and murder inspired a hugely popular genre the detective mystery Hinging on the theft of an enormous diamond originally stolen from an Indian shrine this riveting novel features the innovative Sergeant Cuff the hilarious house steward Gabriel Betteridge a lovesick housemaid and a mysterious band of Indian jugglers br br This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the definitive edition, Wilkie Collins s intriguing story about a blind girl Lucilla Finch and the identical twins who both fall in love with her has the exciting complications of his better known novels but it also overturns conventional expectations Using a background of myth and fairy tale to expand the boundaries of nineteenth century realist fiction Collins gives one of the best accounts in fiction of blindness and its implications, b Mr Vanstone s daughters are Nobody s Children b br br Magdalen Vanstone and her sister Norah learn the true meaning of social stigma in Victorian England only after the traumatic discovery that their dearly loved parents whose sudden deaths have left them orphans were not married at the time of their birth Disinherited by law and brutally ousted from Combe Raven the idyllic country estate which has been their peaceful home since childhood the two young women are left to fend for themselves While the submissive Norah follows a path of duty and hardship as a governess her high spirited and rebellious younger sister has made other decisions Determined to regain her rightful inheritance at any cost Magdalen uses her unconventional beauty and dramatic talent in recklessly pursuing her revenge Aided by the audacious swindler Captain Wragge she braves a series of trials leading up to the climactic test can she trade herself in marriage to the man she loathes br br Written in the early s between i The Woman in White i and i The Moonstone i i No Name i was rejected as immoral by critics of its time but is today regarded as a novel of outstanding social insight showing Collins at the height of his powers
