“[Elizabeth Dickens] liked to say that she had been dancing all night the day before Charles was born; diligent research has shown that the ball took place four days earlier, which only goes to show what a spoilsport diligent research can be. Whatever the timing, dancing a night when you’re nine months gone suggests a certain commitment to fun.”

– Simon Callow, Charles Dickens and the Great Theater of the World
