Synopses & Reviews
From Lewis Black, the uproarious and perpetually apoplectic New York Times-bestselling author and Daily Show regular, comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday, Christmas.
Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth and goodwill toward all. But not for Lewis Black.
He says humbug to the Christmas tradtitions and trappings that make the holiday memorable. In I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas, his hilarious and sharply observed book about the holiday, Lewis lets loose on all things Yule. It's a very personal look at what's wrong with Christmas, seen through the eyes of "the most engagingly pissed-off comedian ever."*
From his own Christmas ritualswhich have absolutely nothing to do with presents or the Christmas tree or Rudolphto his own eccentric experiences with the holiday (from a USO Christmas tour to playing Santa Claus in full regalia), I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas is classic Lewis Black: funny, razor-sharp, insightful, and honest.
You'll never think of Christmas in the same way.
"[With] plenty of Black's trademark rants."
—New York magazine
"[A] sweet and surprising take on the yuletide season."
"That's some endearing sh*t there."
From the comedian and New York Times bestselling author comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday- Christmas.
In his hilarious book about the biggest holiday of the year, Lewis Black lets loose on all things Yule: from how the holiday is celebrated to the traditions that drive him nuts; from being cast as Ebenezer Scrooge in a tour of A Christmas Carol to celebrating the holiday with his ex-wife during their short-lived (and disastrous) marriage. Here, Lewis recounts the annual seasonal insanity he has endured in his funny, razor sharp, insightful, and honest style.
