Item description for A Christmas Carol (Green Integer) by Charles Dickens...
Few readers need introduction to Charles Dickens's great Christmas classic of Ebenezer Scrooge, his dastardly treatment of his employees and family, and his "ba-humbug" attitude towards Christmas-all changed by a nightmarish sleep of visions of past, present, and future.
Although numerous other editions of this book are in print, few are as lovely as the Green Integer edition, edited from the original 1843 edition and corrected by Douglas Messerli. The book will be available for Christmas 2001.

More About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens (1812 70) had a happy childhood until age twelve when, due to his father s confinement in debtors prison, he was forced to leave school to work in a factory. He taught himself shorthand and worked as a parliamentary reporter until his writing career took off with the publication of Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837). As a novelist and magazine editor, Dickens had a long run of serialized success, including Oliver Twist (1838), David Copperfield (1850), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), and Great Expectations (1861). In later years, ill health slowed him down, but he continued his popular dramatic readings from his fiction to an adoring public, which included Queen Victoria. At his death, The Mystery of Edwin Drood remained unfinished. Frederick Busch (1941 2006) was the author of eighteen works of fiction, including Closing Arguments, Girls, and The Mutual Friend, a novel about Charles Dickens. The winner of numerous awards, he was the Fairchild Professor of Literature at Colgate University. Jane Smiley is an American novelist. In addition to her many novels (including Ten Days in the Hills, Horse Heaven, and A Thousand Acres), she wrote a short biography of Charles Dickens for the Penguin Lives series (2001)."
