Synopsis

This is the story behind “the story”.

From the publisher:

“Marley was dead, to begin with ….” – and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge’s mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that?  Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself:  To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley – in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story – discovers his own.
