A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER about Christmases past and present from the #1 bestselling author of Running with Scissors, Dry, and A Wolf at the Table

At eight years old, Augusten Burroughs profoundly misunderstood the meaning of Christmas. Now proving himself once more "a master of making tragedy funny" (The Miami Herald), he shows how the holidays can bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very best. From the author described in USA Today as "one of the most compelling and screamingly funny voices of the new century" comes a book about surviving the holiday we love to hate, and hate to love.


In this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection, Burroughs recounts Christmases past and present as only he can.

About the Author

AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS is the New York Times bestselling author of A Wolf At The Table, Possible Side Effects, Magical Thinking, Dry, Running with Scissors, and Sellevision. He lives in New York City and Amherst, Massachusetts.

These are GREAT stories. Some of them, absolutely laugh out loud funny. Some of them so poignant you want to cry. Burroughs is hysterical and made us all laugh with "Running With Scissors". It's more of the same (but different) in this Christmas collection. Anyone who has every had a Christmas that didn't look like one on a greeting card will enjoy this book. It's a great holiday read!!
