By Rodge TOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 20 2012
Format: Hardcover
This collection of stories from 20th century writers won't exactly leave you warm and fuzzy and won't blow you away with profundity either. There are some unique works here, with the occasional laugh. Features writers like Alice Munro, John Cheever, and Vladimir Nabokov so you get an international flavor. If you want a take on subjects related to or parallel to Christmas this collection is fine, but the collection as a whole doesn't necessarily provide a compelling reason for its existence.
