A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks among the most famous works in the history of fictional literature.

They travel together from then on, and end up running into the Defarges, who know about Dr. Manette but are also secret French Revolutionaries. When they finally get to his jail cell, they find that Dr. Manette is insane, to the point where he almost doesn’­t recognize his own daughter.
