You've eaten too much candy at Christmas...but have you ever eaten the face off a six-footstuffed Santa? You've seen gingerbread houses...but have you ever made your own gingerbread tenement? You've woken up with a hangover.. .but have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Augusten Burrough s has, and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving colle ction he recounts Christmases past and present-as only he could. With gimle teyed wit and illuminated prose, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. With hilarious, heart-warming, and emotional Yule-tide tale s, Burroughs revisits his childhood Christmases that seemed to bring out th e best and worst in his family and friends. Burroughs reads with such ease and candor he seems more old friend than narrator. With his crisp diction, smooth delivery, and relentlessly funny material, Burroughs could easily ha ve a new career as a performer, but for now, listeners can give thanks for this early Christmas present.
