Humbug: Scrooge Before the Ghosts (Hardcover)

by Sarah Whelan

Humbug: Scrooge Before the Ghosts offers a new twist on Charles Dickens’s iconic Christmas tale and will forever change the way we think about Ebenezer Scrooge.

While Dickens merely gave us a snapshot of the miserly antihero, he nonetheless left clues to a robust backstory that hints at a deeper, multifaceted character. Scrooge is a doting uncle, beloved brother, successful businessman, and lover, but the burdens of grief and responsibility take their toll over time. Coincidences and accidents mold his life into a complex path of rejection, anxiety, and despair—but ultimately to acceptance, reunion, and even love.
