For Charles Dickens, each Christmas is been better than the last. His novels are literary blockbusters, avid fans litter the streets and he and his wife have five happy children and a sixth on the way. But when Dickens' latest book, Martin Chuzzlewit, is a flop, the glorious life threatens to collapse around him. His publishers offer an ultimatum: either he writes a Christmas book in a month, or they will call in his debts, and he could lose everything. Grudgingly, and increasingly plagued by self-doubt, Dickens meets the muse he needs in Eleanor Lovejoy. With time running out, Dickens is propelled on a Scrooge-like journey through Christmases past and present.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a charming, comic, and ultimately poignant Christmas tale about the creation of the most famous Christmas tale ever written. It's as foggy and haunted and redemptive as the original; it's all heart, and I read it in a couple of ebullient, Christmassy gulps.' Anthony Doerr, bestselling author of All The Light We Cannot See; `Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a novel of pure charm and humor, a terrific holiday tale. Samantha Silva had me haunting those dark streets alongside her inspired Dickens' Jess Walter, bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins

“Mr Dickens and His Carol”

It’s 1843, Christmastime is approaching, and Charles Dickens is feeling the pinch. His most recent work, Martin Chuzzlewit, has not been as well received by the reading public as either he or his publishers had... More

“Samantha Silva wonderfully captures the simultaneously dreary and charming atmosphere of Dickens' London”

A Christmas Carol is by far my favourite novel written by Charles Dickens; I love rereading it as much as I love rewatching A Muppet Christmas Carol on an annual basis. So when I first heard about this novel telling... More

This was just lovely! I love Dickens at Christmas and absolutely love being there at the moment when an author wrote a classic novel. Real or not, it’s a possible explanation for how he came up with the ideas and... More
