The IPA’s “Great Books of Literature podcast” is a ten-part series with Andrew Bolt and John Roskam talking about their ten favourite books of literature.

In episode one, Andrew and John discuss Charles Dickens’ Bleak House, its themes and Dickens’ life and times.

Bleak House is held to be one of Dickens’s finest novels, containing one of the most vast, complex and engaging arrays of minor characters and sub-plots in his entire canon.

At the novel’s core is long-running litigation in England’s Court of Chancery, Jarndyce v Jarndyce, which has far-reaching consequences for all involved.
