Product Details

Praise

“A rich and classy story collection (with sewn-in red ribbon bookmark) by such literary greats as Dickens, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Cather, Nabokov, Cheever and Munro. If this were an assortment of chocolates, it would be a feast of the finest dark truffles–not a cheap, waxy bite in the bunch.” –Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Think you’ve heard it all? Every tiny reindeer named, every Grinch ungrinched, all the ho-ho-hum holiday stories tediously read, recited, re-recited, the classics on a constant loop? Maybe not. Here are twenty Christmas tales, from Tolstoy to Richard Ford, as fresh as a Christmas Eve snowfall.” –Charles McNair, NPR.org
