Author Bio
Wilkie Collins
Wilkie Collins was the son of the landscape painter William Collins. His godfather was Sir David Wilkie, another English painter. In 1841, Collins began an apprenticeship in the tea trade, but grew bored of the job and began writing stories. His first book, a historical novel set in fifth-century Rome, was lost; the second, a biography of his father, he published privately. In 1851, Collins met Charles Dickens. He began contributing to Dickens's magazine Household Words, and to the periodical All the Year Round. With Dickens, Collins shared an interest in the theater. His friends in the literary milieu also included Edward Lear, Oscar Wilde, George Meredith, and Thomas Hardy. The author of dozens of books, Collins was most proud of THE WOMAN IN WHITE--so proud, in fact, that he had his tombstone engraved: "Author of THE WOMAN IN WHITE."

Praise

Salon
"The Sensation Novel, that explosive phenomenon of the 1860s, here most thoroughly lives up to its billing....Secret crimes, prophetic dreams, stolen identities: from these Collins constructs a melodrama that is like an immense prose poem." - Geoffrey O'Brien 09/08/2000

Athenaeum (London), 19th-century
"We are in a period of diseased invention, and the coming phase of it may be palsy. Mr. Collins belongs to the class of professing satirists who are eager to lay bare the 'blotches and bains' which fester beneath the skin and taint the blood of humanity....This time the interest of his tale centers upon one of the most hardened female villains whose devices and desires have ever blackened fiction--a forger, a convicted adulteress, murderess, and thief, aged thirty-five...." - H. F. Chorley 06/02/1866

Times Literary Supplement
"The one of Collins's novels which we should choose as the most typical, or as the best of the more typical, and which we should recommend as a specimen of the melodramatic fiction of the epoch, is 'Armadale'....Like most of Collins's novels, it has the immense--and nowadays more and more rare--merit of never being dull." - T. S. Eliot 08/04/1927
