In 1835, Dickens is working as a journalist and publishing stories wherever and whenever he can. He's still in love with Maria Beadnell but she seems to think less of him thanks at least in part to information from her friend Mary Ann. He drowns his sorrows at the local ale house and he falls into the arms of Desdemona. Although he writes under a pseudonym, Dickens begins to gather a following. His first book nets him £150, much to his spendthrift father's pride and joy. The money doesn't last very long. The elder Dickens is again arrested and put in the sponging house.On a visit to his publisher's house he meets the man's daughter, Catherine Hogarth.
