Dickens's other Christmas writings collected here include 'The Story of the Goblins who Stole a Sexton', the short story from The Pickwick Papers on which A Christmas Carol was based; The Haunted Man, a tale of a man tormented by painful memories; along with shorter pieces, some drawn from the 'Christmas Stories' that Dickens wrote annually for his weekly journals.

A Christmas Carol is one of the most famous works by English writer Charles Dickens. The novella, fully titled A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas, has never been out of print since it was first published in 1843. In five chapters, or staves, it tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly man who lives alone and only cares about making and hoarding his money. Through the course of three supernatural visits that occur the night of Christmas Eve, Scrooge learns the true meaning of life and Christmas. The story opens with Ebenezer Scrooge sitting in his office. It is Christmas Eve, but he isn't in the Christmas spirit. He is visited by his nephew Fred, but refuses the invitation to attend Christmas dinner at Fred's house the next day. Scrooge also turns away two men looking for donations for the poor and later only grudgingly grants his employee, Bob Cratchit, the day off for Christmas to spend with his family. When Scrooge arrives home later that evening, he senses that someone is in his house. He is visited by a ghostly specter that turns out to be his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley is wrapped in chains entwined with moneyboxes. He tells Scrooge that he is doomed to roam earth in the heavy chains as punishment for his greed. Scrooge learns that three spirits will visit him that night and that he must listen to them to escape the same fate as Marley. If he doesn't, he may end up bearing heavier and longer chains upon his death. The first spirit to visit Scrooge is the Ghost of Christmas Past. He takes Scrooge back to the more innocent days of his youth. Scrooge witnesses his lonely childhood, but is also reminded of his love for his sister Fan (who later died after giving birth to his nephew). Scrooge and the spirit move on to his early adulthood. They stop by the holiday festivities of Scrooge's first employer, the jovial Mr. Fezziwig, who was a kind mentor that treated Scrooge like family. Scrooge next witnesses his younger self interacting with his then fiancée, Belle. Their relationship ended when Belle realized that Scrooge would never love her as much as he loves money. The ghost later takes Scrooge to see Belle and her large, happy family. Walking through these memories evokes a range of emotions in Scrooge. He begs the ghost to take him back to his own time and finds himself in his bed. When the clock strikes again, the Ghost of Christmas Present visits Scrooge. After touching his robes, the ghost whisks Scrooge off to witness various households joyously preparing for Christmas. At Bob Cratchit's modest home, he sees his employee's family for the first time. Scrooge wants to know more about Bob's small, happy boy who is crippled. The spirit tells him the boy is Tiny Tim, and that the boy will die if his future isn't changed. At the end of their journey, the spirit shows Scrooge two emaciated children called Ignorance and Want and tells him to beware them both, but especially the latter. The final spirit to visit Scrooge is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. This silent spirit takes Scrooge to the funeral place of a widely despised man. Although Scrooge is appalled at the deceased man's treatment, the spirit is unable to show him anyone that is sad to have the man gone. Rather, his peers will only attend the funeral if lunch is provided, the man's domestic workers steal from him to make some money, and one couple celebrates because their outstanding debt to Scrooge is now sorted.

Celebrate the spirit of the season with this complimentary edition of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol–the perfect companion for a cozy night by the fire. Includes an exclusive excerpt from Marley, Jon Clinch’s masterful reimagining of A Christmas Carol: “In Marley, again Jon Clinch shows his genius, taking Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and turning it inside out, revealing its contemporary wonder, making the characters and actions of both Scrooge and Marley entirely modern, without losing a beat of Dickens’ Victorian music.” —Robert Goolrick, New York Times bestselling author of A Reliable Wife “I am the Ghost of Christmas Present,” said the Spirit. “Look upon me!” Since its publication in 1843, A Christmas Carol has become a cultural touchstone, imparting a message as relevant to our world today as it was in Dickens’ own Victorian age. As it tells the story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve, the book reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. This timeless tale of transformation and redemption makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves great storytelling.
