Reviews

"This smoothly written, insightful tale should prompt people to reread its inspiration with fresh eyes."--Robert Goolrick, New York Times bestselling author of A Reliable Wife and The Dying of the Light "Booklist"
"[A] lively imagined prequel." --People--Robert Goolrick, New York Times bestselling author of A Reliable Wife and The Dying of the Light "Booklist"
"[Clinch] brilliantly captures the wit and irony of Dickens' prose as he unfurls a tale of greed, cruelty, and passion.... An adroit, sharply drawn portrayal of Dickens's indelible characters." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)
[A] gripping tale...If A Christmas Carol tugs at the heartstrings, Clinch's novel deepens the story to eviscerate the whole heart." --Publishers Weekly
"It's one thing to come up with a brilliant premise, but it's another thing to know what to do with it, how to realize its potential. As he did with Finn, Jon Clinch digs down to the bones of a classic and creates must-read modern literature."--Charles Frazier, New York Times bestselling author of Cold Mountain and Varina
"By some uncanny act of artistic appropriation, [Clinch] has, without imitating Dickens, entered into the phantasmagoric realm that is the great novelist's quintessential territory. . . Startling and creative. . . Remarkable. . . Masterly." --Simon Callow in The New York Times Book Review
"Jon Clinch is a brilliant stylist, effortlessly capturing Dickensian locales and characters with a precision that is both evocative and a joy...Read through to the last page of this brilliant book, and I promise you that you will have a permanently changed view, not just of Dickens's world, but of the world we live in today...Delightful, disturbing, and deeply profound."--Elizabeth Letts, New York Times bestselling author of Finding Dorothy
"In Marley, again Jon Clinch shows his genius, taking Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and turning it inside out, revealing its contemporary wonder, making the characters and actions of both Scrooge and Marley entirely modern, without losing a beat of Dickens' Victorian music. Here is a favorite wrapped in brand new paper, to unwrap with delight and everlasting, compassionate and charming music all its own."--Robert Goolrick, New York Times bestselling author of A Reliable Wife and The Dying of the Light
