Marvin Kaye
"I was impressed and moved on many levels--not only by Marvin Kaye's mastery of Dickensian style, but also by a kind of optimism, or idealism, far more consistent with Victorian Dickens/Kaye than with purely contemporary Kaye. I can imagine that Marvin really did write it as Dickens might have wanted it to go."
