Every month or so I update the Story of the Month.
This month it’s Dodger, which is a riff on the character from Oliver Twist. In the novel, the assumption is that he’d be transported to Australia. I don’t think he ever made the journey.
The story imagines him returning to London after two or three years in reform school, or wherever he was sent to atone for his crimes.
