Dickens's Lifetime Reading: Review in Dickens Studies Annual 51 (2020), p. 163: "Litvack presents a comprehensive and well-organized account of what Dickens read and how so many of those readings affected his own views and writings. In addition to naming and explaining the importance of particular works, he lists many of the topics and types of literature read, which will aid future scholarship that delves into these topics in relation to Dickens's life and writings. Litvack notes both that Dickens's works "display evidence of substantial research" and that Dickens as editor of Household Words and All the Year Round was conversant with all of the nonfiction that he published."
