The third of Monica Dickens autobiographical books describes her time as cub reporter on the Downingham Post, a long established small-town paper with a steady circulation and not much sympathy with the innovations of its junior reporter.
The highly successful novelist Monica Dickens is the great-grand-daughter of Charles Dickens.
Monica Enid Dickens (1915-1992) was a British writer, the great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens. She was born in an upper middle class London family to Henry Charles Dickens (1882-1966), a barrister, and Fanny Runge. Having become disillusioned with the world she was brought up in she was expelled from St Paul's Girls' School in London before she was presented at court as a debutante she decided to go into service despite coming from the privileged class; her experiences as a cook and general servant would form the nucleus of her first book, One Pair Of Hands in 1939. One Pair Of Feet (1942) recounted her work as a nurse, and subsequently she worked in an aircraft factory and on a local newspaper her experiences in the latter field of work inspired her 1951 book My Turn To Make The Tea..
