A Christmas Carol has been made into so many films, plays, television shows, and even operas and graphic novels that it is sometimes difficult to remember that its purest form is the novel that Charles Dickens wrote in the early 1840s and published with the title "A Christmas Carol in Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas." The original is no mere literary antique; it displays its author's talent for rendering vivid character portraits even as he dispenses his modern sense of social justice. This Penguin Christmas Classic hardcover presents this classic in full trimmings as a low price.
