Publisher's Weekly Review

That perennial favorite, A Christmas Carol, forms the centerpiece of Dickens' Christmas: A Victorian Celebration by Simon Callow, whose one-man Dickens show appeared in the West End and on Broadway. Along with the unabridged work, the volume includes an overview of how Christmas was celebrated before and during Dickens's time, biographical information about the author and art by contemporaneous illustrators.
