If the most wonderful time of year is enough to plunge you into a gloom, look no further. This collection of spirited stories and vibrant poetry will brighten your mood as it brings together Charles Dickens and Philip Larkin, W.H.Auden and Wendy Cope, Jilly Cooper and Dylan Thomas. From tales of carolling and snatched mistletoe kisses to ‘The Worst Christmas Dinner, Ever’, there’s something here to amuse and interest Christmas lovers, grinches, and everyone in between.
A wonderfully subversive anthology.
Simon Rae is as interested in the unorthodox as the traditional.
Bookworms will love these Christmas-inspired stories and poems
Exceptionally well-edited by Simon Rae, giving due space to the cons of Christmas as well as the pros... This consistently thought-provoking anthology, including a lot of well-chosen contemporary poetry alongside such familiar pleasures... Here’s a Christmassy Christmas present that anybody, save perhaps William Brown, would enjoy.’
Beautifully produced, with an exquisite Liberty fabric cover and a ribbon marker… this is sure to become part of your traditional Christmas reading.
