Summary

Holiday stories and traditions enchantingly reimagined - with an insightfully satirical twist. Featuring five stories new to this collection, plus seven previously published stories, now all collected together for the first time.
From the award-winning author of Crosstalk.
No one could ask for a better present than a collection of Connie Willis Christmas tales. These are amazing stories, representing all the best of the Connie Willis experience: true Christmas gifts to her many fans. They are full of humor, absurdity, human foibles, tragedy, joy, and hope. They both send up and embrace many of the best Christmas traditions, such as the Christmas newsletter, Secret Santas, office parties, holiday pageants, and Christmas dinners (both elaborate and spare). There are ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come; debates over which is the best Christmas movie (Connie argues for the original Miracle on 34th Street, hands down); Rockettes; modern-day Magi; and the triumph of generosity over greed.

Christmas stories for grown ups

Love Connie Willis and these stories are great for listening to as Christmas approaches. Very cheering when queuing or sitting in Xmas traffic jams! Also Willis provides a list of good Xmas films, stories and tv episodes at the end. A great selection and really useful. So have a pen and paper handy for the epilogue!
