Publisher's Summary

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 Burroughs has, and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection he recounts Christmases past and present - as only he could. With gimleteyed wit and illuminated prose, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.

Buy the book, skip the audiobook.

I always prefer it when authors, especially my favourites, read their own works, so I was surprised at how badly this was read. There's no natural flow, which is sad, because the stories are genuinely entertaining and the author's voice is pleasant. It was as if the entire book was broken down into haiku form and then read as such.
