"SantaLand Diaries" 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 back seat of a 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! "Acidly camp, bitchily kitsch and slickly satirical packages of out-there humour...very funny" - "Sunday Times".
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
'a writer whose sentences are shaped for comic timing and to be heard as much as read. He focuses on the small details, piling themnm up neatily in his dry, clever way, building tension'. The Herald 'One of the wittiest books I've read this year... Santaland diaries is another Sedaris triumph. From describing the worst examples of greed and selfishness at a time traditionally given over to kindness, to shattering glittery Christmas myths, he has managed to keep his splendid sense of humour about it all, thus saving SANTALAND DIARIES from becoming too much like an offering from Scrooge .'
