Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Holidays on Ice collects six of David Sedaris's most profound Christmas stories into one slender audio perfect for use as a last minute coaster or ice scraper. This drinking man's companion can be enjoyed by the warmth of a raging fire, the glow of a brilliantly decorated tree, or even in the back seat of a van or police car. "The SantaLand Diaries", "Dinah, the Christmas Whore", and "Season's Greetings Greetings to our Friends and Family!!!" — all previously published stories — have been joined by a trio of equally charming newcomers.

A network television executive strong arms the congregation of a small pentecostal church in, "Based on A True Story." "Front Row Center with Thaddeus Bristol" finds a bitter local theater critic savagely attacking the various holiday plays and pageants presented by the area's elementary schools. And finally in "Christmas Means Giving", two competitive families celebrate the season by giving the gift of themselves.

Review:

"Christmas laughs old and new from the comedian who made his name with The Santaland Diaries." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Holidays on Ice collects six of David Sedaris's most profound Christmas stories into one slender volume perfect for use as a last-minute coaster or ice scraper. This drinking man's companion can be enjoyed by the warmth of a raging fire, the glow of a brilliantly decorated tree, or even in the backseat of a van or police car. It should be read with your eyes, felt with your heart, and heard only when spoken to. It should, in short, behave much like a book. And, oh, what a book it is!

Synopsis:

Sedaris skewers the absurd conventions and contrivances of the holiday season with hilarious effect. Listener-favorite "SantaLand Diaries" joins new material that sparkles with imagination. Special guest Ann Magnuson performs "Merry Christmas to Our Friends and Family", and Amy Sedaris peppers the stories with tidbits of comical characters throughout. Abridged. 3 CDs.
