More About A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens; Mimi Kennedy; Susan StambergOverviewThe enchanting NPR holiday favorite is finally on CD. "Old Marley was as dead as a doornail"--and so, nearly, was Christmas itself when Charles Dickens published "A Christmas Carol" in 1843. Most traditions had been forgotten, and few if any employees got time off to celebrate. Dickens' story captured the imagination of a generation and transformed December 25 into a major holiday. For many National Public Radio listeners, it just wouldn't be Christmas without hearing Jonathan Winters perform "A Christmas Carol." The master comedian brilliantly re-creates Dickens' cast of colorful characters: Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley's spirit, and the three Christmas ghosts, Past, Present, and Future. His distinctive and charming reading uses a special version of the story prepared by Dickens for his own performances. The liner notes are by Winters, who clearly revels in the story's language and message: "Merry Christmas, every one "
Stocking stuffers and beyond
When a classic comic, Jonathan Winters, meets a Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol, we get a golden oldie that really glitters. And we get Winters at his best, seeming to channel all the voices of Dickens' beloved characters. Available as an audio for the first time, this National Public Radio favorite is a very special holiday special.
