Author(s): Augusten Burroughs
You've eaten too much chocolate at Christmas...but have you ever eaten the face off a six-foot-tall-stuffed Santa? You ve seen gingerbread houses...but have you ever made your own gingerbread tenement? You've woken up with a hangover...but have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Augusten Burroughs has and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant and moving book he recounts Christmases past and present - as only he can. With gimlet-eyed wit and brilliant prose, Augusten shows how the holiday brings out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.
Augusten Burroughs is the best-selling author of the memoirs Running with Scissors and Dry, and the novel Sellevision. His latest book, Magical Thinking, is a collection of true stories.
