Seth Pecksniff (Martin Chuzzlewit) Seth is a main character in Charles Dickens’ novel, Martin Chuzzlewit, originally serialized in 1843-44, and holds the title of one of the most marvelous villains in literary fiction. In fact, his name became a synonym for hypocrisy in the 19th century. Along with his two daughters, judiciously named Charity and Mercy, but hilariously nicknamed Cherry and Merry, he portrays himself as a very moral person, when in fact he is anything but. He is a substandard architect who holds “classes” for students, all the while passing off their work as his own. He is conniving, unctuous, mean-spirited and sanctimonious – in short, the type of villain whose downfall is hopefully awaited and gleefully received.

Seth and Samona (Joanne Hyppolite) - Narrator Seth Michelin, the youngest of a closely knit Haitian American family, has spent two years trying in vain to distance himself from Samona Gemini, the kooky, flamboyant daughter of a free-spirited poet who happens to be a friend of Mrs. Michelin. The warmth and the strict codes of honor and propriety that bind Seth's family prove a powerful attraction to Samona, just as they will to the reader, while Seth's fresh voice adds witty counterpoint. Recommended for ages 8-12.
