You've probably heard of a few writers: William Shakespeare and his popular plays; Jane Austen and her love stories; Charles Dickens and his big blockbusters. But have you heard that William Shakespeare got mixed up in a plot against the Queen? Jane Austen nearly became a Bigg-Wither? Charles Dickens had his clothes ripped off by his fans? Yes, even when they're dead writers are still full of surprises and the eight in this book are more surprising than most. Now you can get the inside story from their secret diaries, flick through "Good Day!" magazine for some nineteenth-century gossip, and find out all about the writers whose tall tales have changed the world.
