“This isn’t a blockbuster version of Dickens’s familiar Christmas tale but rather a classically narrated one, imbued with a gentle fireside feel. Derek Perkins sounds eminently comfortable with Dickens’ language and turns of phrase, and, in turn, he always makes their meaning clear for listeners. His restrained characterizations add just the right amount of color, drawing listeners into the world Dickens conjures. By the end, listeners will believe that his Scrooge is a changed man. As a bonus, listeners are also treated to a delightful reading of ‘The Night before Christmas’ by Alison Larkin, plus her brief commentary about the two Christmas classics.”

About the Authors

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.

Clement Clarke Moore (1779–1863) was an American professor of oriental and Greek literature, as well as divinity and biblical learning, at the General Theological Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal Church, in New York City. He is the author of the yuletide poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” which became famous as “The Night before Christmas.”
