    Summary

    Uriah Heep has always been glad to do David Copperfield any favour, and offers to perform a somewhat indecent one for the new-minted alpha. David is taken aback, but being a fresh and curious sort of young man, he's hardly uninterested.

    Summary

    Young David Copperfield is exceedingly well liked and well respected in Canterbury. Isn't it strange, Uriah Heep observes, that he has had no intimate friendships with the other boys, in all his time at school?

    Summary

    It is devil of a thing to be worshipped by a man worth ten of you. No end of trouble and no end of pleasure. Though he had only known it to happen to him once, James Steerforth was careless enough to put it down as a general truth. He thought it again and again, that day when he first seduced David Copperfield.

    Summary

    Successful author David Copperfield receives a letter from an admirer, which sparks a long and increasingly emotionally involving correspondence. But there are things it's easier to lie about at a distance, especially if the person you're lying to is desperate to help you by deluding himself.

    Summary

    Davida Copperfield's life is ideal. Her readers all know it, as do her family, her friends, her acquaintances and her children. In fact she may be the only person who thinks otherwise (well, she and the husband who blackmailed her into marriage in the first place).

    Summary

    Rising author Davida Copperfield always ends up shagging her secondary school frenemy? nemesis? her something, anyway—Uriah Heep at weddings. It's just casual, a one night stand that's got out of hand. Uriah would call it a crime of opportunity. Probably.

    Summary

    Davida Betsey Trotwood Copperfield has an undisciplined heart, and though very well brought up indeed, she is not proof against the temptation to repose foolish confidences where they are not, perhaps, deserved.

    Uriah Heep would have married Agnes Wickfield for financial security and never felt himself emotionally involved by any of it. Mr Wickfield's remarriage to Clara Copperfield ruins that prospect in several ways at once.
