'Meet Charles Dickens'

I disagree adamantly with Ray Loynd's review of the one-man show "Meet Charles Dickens" ("One-Man 'Charles Dickens' at West Coast Ensemble a Bit Musty," Dec. 22).

Actor Philip King Kroopf brought Dickens to life and made him a very human figure. Especially poignant was when the Dickens character reflects upon the denial of his knighthood because he left his wife for a young actress.

Dickens is so much more than a year-end tradition, and Kroopf's presentation brought out the depth and breadth of an author for all seasons.
