Politische und gesellschaftliche Themen aufgreifen, Missstände anprangern, Scheinheiligkeiten und Selbstgerechtigkeiten aufdecken - das sind Dinge, die nicht nur dem vielleicht grössten Romancier des viktorianischen Zeitalters Charles Dickens (1812-1870) am Herzen lagen, sondern auch und vor allem: dem unermüdlichen Reporter und begnadeten Feuilletonisten Dickens. Als solcher durchstreift er in der Rolle des "Uncommercial Traveller", des "Reisenden ohne Gewerbeschein", in der beiläufigen Manier des Flaneurs und mit zugleich treffsicherer Beobachtungsgabe die Welt im Grossen wie im Kleinen, zwischen Tag und Nacht, zwischen Wachzustand und Traum. Der Band versammelt aus diesem journalistisch-essayistischen Kompendium Dickens' ausgewählte Kabinettstücke über nächtliche Phänomene und Erlebnisse. In ihnen allen funkelt der Spott aber auch Sprachwitz des unnachahmlichen Dickens'schen Tonfalls. Charles Dickens, geboren 1812 in Hampshire, gestorben 1870 in Kent, ist neben Shakespeare der vielleicht bekannteste britische Autor der Weltliteratur mit so berühmten Romanen wie "Die Pickwickier", "Oliver Twist", "David Copperfield", u.v.a. und der bis heute in allen Formaten präsentierten "Weihnachtsgeschichte"
