Derek Perkins is the Audie and AudioFile Earphones award winning narrator of over 200 audiobooks and an AudioFile Magazines Best Voice of 2014.

    Following her recent adaptation of Great Expectations, bestselling novelist and award-winning audiobook narrator Alison Larkin changes the gender of Scrooge in this exciting new recording of A Christmas Carol. It's the same beloved Christmas story - only one thing has changed. In this version, Scrooge is a woman. Everything else, though, is pure Dickens. So, the characters around Scrooge behave as if it were quite normal for a woman to learn to read and write, fall in love with and reject a woman and have the kind of career only men could dream of in 1843. It's an irresistible question. If gender had been simply irrelevant in the 19th century where would we all be...read more

    In 1842, Charles Dickens visited America. His reception was somewhat colder than that which usually greeted him – already a successful author in both Britain and the U.S. This lack of enthusiasm from the Americans was partly due to his criticism of the pirating of English books in that country and partly due to his outspoken distaste for the custom of slavery in the southern states. He wrote in the preface to ‘American Notes’, "Prejudiced I am not, and never have been, otherwise than in favour of the United States. I have many friends in America. I feel a grateful interest in the country. I hope and believe it will successfully work out a problem of the highest importance in the whole...read more

    1842 brach der junge und schon gefeierte Autor Charles Dickens zu einer Lesereise nach Amerika und Kanada auf - von Boston bis St. Louis, von Richmond bis Quebec, mit Bahn oder Schiff. Zunächst stellte er sich ein Amerika vor, in dem eine tolerante und demokratische Zukunftsgesellschaft entstehen würde, ohne den Dünkel der englischen Aristokratie. Umso enttäuschter war er über den amerikanischen Kapitalismus und vor allem über die Sklaverei. Seine Kritik an Land und Leuten formulierte er unmittelbar und nicht ohne Ironie in seinen 'Aufzeichnungen aus Amerika', gelesen von Christian...read more
