Simply lovely interview about one of the favorite stories of all time! Declan Kiely exhibited many of the characteristics he attributes to Dickens (like fastidiousness & great attention to detail) in his captivating description of the creation of "A Christmas Carol," as well as its restoration by staff at The Morgan. I can't wait to see this facsimile of Dickens' "own and only manuscript."

Professor Slater mentioned the bit about Dickens thinking better of the Hamlet digression in his brilliant remarks of 11/2 at The Morgan (while discussing the famous Orwell essay on Dickens). In the twist, Prof Slater also mentioned Dickens usually employed Hamlet references in a humorous fashion: so much for the Dane being no fun at a party!

Would love to hold in my hands and savor page by page the work in progress as it materialized! Have you also considered offering this in ebook format? As a librarian facing our new realities with ambivalence, I think its popularity might well triple.
