What the Dickens...
I think this is the best Christmas present the New York Times could have given us:
access to Charles Dickens' original manuscript of A Christmas Carol - "my own, and only manuscript of the book" - complete with crossings-out and rewrites.
The only thing more wondrous than being able to see and hold someone's thoughts is being able to see and examine a creative person's thought process.
Hat tip to Michael Leddy for the links.
