The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits by Les Standiford

"An uplifting study of the story behind Dickens's most beloved work, A Christmas Carol, describes how the author, at a low point in his career, self-published the holiday classic, revitalizing Dickens's failing literary career and reviving the celebration of Christmas amid the struggles of the Industrial Revolution." -- Provided by publisher.
