Synopses & Reviews
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without impulse-priced holiday gift books—and now The Onion
is bringing its signature irreverence to the genre. Christmas Exposed
features more than one hundred shocking tales of secret Santas, shopping mall mayhem, dysfunctional families, and (don’t ask) autoerotic asphyxiation. Readers will discover such hard-hitting coverage, like
• Child Bored with Christmas Puppy
• Weed Delivery Guy Saves Christmas
• Jesus “Really Dreading” This Next Birthday
• Man Braves Freezing Weather to Cross Parking Lot
• And many more!
In the tradition of David Sedaris’s Holidays on Ice or Lewis Black’s I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas, The Onion Presents: Christmas Exposed is the perfect stocking stuffer for the well-informed reader in every family.

About the Author
The Onion is the world’s most popular humor publication. It was started in 1988 by University of Wisconsin-Madison students Tim Keck and Chris Johnson. In a matter of months, The Onion was the stuff of campus legend. Over the years the publication has expanded to many markets, with a significant print and internet presence, as well as books, radio, merchandise and film. The Onion continues its historic evolution from a coltishly admired campus oddity to a world-renowned comedy and media phenomenon. However, the key to the company’s success remains its popular and groundbreaking world-class editorial content.
