Overview
(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

"Christmas Stories" is a treasury of short fiction by great writers of the past two centuries from Dickens and Tolstoy to John Updike and Alice Munro. As a literary subject, Christmas has inspired everything from intimate domestic dramas to fanciful flights of the imagination, and the full range of its expression is represented in this wonderfully engaging anthology.
Goblins frolic in the graveyard of an early Dickens tale and a love-struck ghost disrupts a country estate in Elizabeth Bowen s Green Holly. The plight of the less fortunate haunts Chekhov s Vanka and Willa Cather s The Burglar s Christmas but takes a boisterously comic turn in Damon Runyon s Dancing Dan s Christmas and in John Cheever s Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor. From Vladimir Nabokov s intensely moving story of a father s grief in Christmas to Truman Capote s hilarious yet heartbreaking A Christmas Memory, from Grace Paley s Jewish girl starring in the Christmas pageant in The Loudest Voice to the dysfunctional family ski holiday in Richard Ford s Creche each of the stories gathered here is imbued with Christmas spirit (of one kind or another), and all are richly and indelibly entertaining."
