Synopsis:

Marvin Kaye has crafted a wondeful sequel to Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", picking up the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and revisiting familiar characters such as Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, and many others, following it through to an altogether satisfying conclusion in an intricate tapestry of the real and the supernatural, as the reformed Scrooge tries to satisfy a nagging feeling of something yet undone. "Intriguing and unusual, it's a very interesting idea to put a new text into an 'intertextual' relationship with a Dickens original. The treatment of the Jewish angle throws a sidelight on early C19th society and fictional representations of it at the time which is extremely interesting. I'm sure that many readers will find it fascinating. In short, a worthy endeavour with much that is thought-provoking." - Charles Palliser. "It's a brave soul who writes a sequel to a universally-loved and -known book like "A Christmas Carol"; it's a rarer man still who does a job as fine as Marvin Kaye of evoking Charles Dickens without imitating him, of extending a story that had until now seemed resolved and delivering a tale which will delight, terrify and affect all readers."

- Kim Newman "I was impressed and moved on many levels, not only by Marvin Kaye's mastery of Dickensian style, but also by a kind of optimism, or idealism, far more consistent with Victorian Dickens/Kaye than with purely contemporary Kaye. I can imagine that Marvin really did write it as Dickens might have wanted it to go." - Paula Volsky "This is a magical, indeed a miraculous, story. Here is the vision of the Afterlife which Dickens did not address, but was the unanswered question at the end of his original tale. It is rare indeed when an author writes a sequel to some other author's work and does not diminish both. It's brilliant." - Morgan Llywelyn.
