The Autumn 2004 Andrew Lloyd Webber West End musical adaptation of The Women In White provided an addtional impetus to the on-going fascination with Wilkie Collins's (1824-1889) unconventional life and writings. This Chronology, drawing upon recently published editions of his letters, is the first to comprehensively illuminate the facts of his mysterious life. It includes sections on people of importance in his life, is fully indexed and will be an indispensable reference work for all those interested in a major Victorian writer, the Victorian novel, short story, drama and detective fiction.
