Charles Dickens should be looking forward to Christmas. But when his latest book, Martin Chuzzlewit, is a flop, his publishers give him an ultimatum. Either he writes a Christmas book in a month or they will call in his debts and he could lose everything. Dickens has no choice but to grudgingly accept...

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; 'Wildly moving, chock full of Dickensian atmosphere and written in a style as rich as a Victorian Christmas dinner' Daily Mail 'Samantha Silva brings the great man, the Inimitable, to sizzling life in Mr Dickens and His Carol. This man who brimmed with Christmases past, present, and future walks onto the public stage again in these pages, takes a bow, and enjoys the ringing applause.' Jay Parini, author of The Last Station and The Passages of H.M .; 'Samantha Silva wonderfully captures the simultaneously dreary and charming atmosphere of Dickens' London and imagination within this semi-historical novel, incorporating plenty of references to pivotal points in A Christmas Carol ... I thoroughly enjoyed seeing A Christmas Carol slowly take shape within Charles Dickens' imagination.' Page to Stage Reviews;

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
