Wishin' and Hopin': A Christmas Story (Playaway Adult Fiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With his latest story, WISHIN' AND HOPIN', Wally Lamb takes a turn toward the lighthearted and laugh-provoking. In a vein similar to Jean Shepherds A Christmas Story and David Sedariss The Santaland Diaries, Lambs holiday tale focuses on a feisty parochial school fifth grader named Felix Funicelloa distant cousin of the iconic Annette! Both poignant and hilarious, WISHIN' AND HOPIN' transports us back to October, November, and December of 1964, when LBJ and Lady Bird were in the White House, Meet the Beatles was on everyones turntables, and Christmas meant mistletoe, mangers, and midnight mass. Then it propels us from the past to the present so that we might measure what weve gained and what weve lost.
