A New Take on the Dickens Classic, ‘A Christmas Carol’, Illustrated by Local Author and Artist Paige Peterson

When it comes to Christmas stories, there may be none more beloved than Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. It may seem like a bold move to alter such a classic, but that’s exactly what Jesse Kornbluth, an author and contributing editor to Vanity Fair and New York Magazine, and editor of cultural concierge, HeadButler.com, decided to do when he realized his daughter couldn’t quite cope with the 28,000-word, 1843 original. Kornbluth cut the book in half, and recruited Marin local Paige Peterson to illustrate the book, to “convey the feeling of London in 1843 without the formal diction and Victorian heaviness.”
