Christmas Past

The fascinating stories behind your favorite Christmas traditions

Interview — Novelist Jon Clinch, author of Marley


Christmas in Quarantine: Day 12. Today’s installment is an interview with author Jon Clinch. His 2019 novel, Marley is a prequel to A Christmas Carol and the untold story of Scrooge’s mysterious business partner. It’s a moody, noirish return to the world of Dickens in a story of double dealings, false identities, debauchery, and even worse! I recently caught up with Jon Clinch from his home in Vermont.
