Tell a Friend
The Twelve Terrors of Christmas by John Updike.
Drawings by Edward Gorey.

Edward Gorey’s off-kilter depictions of Yuletide mayhem and John Updike’s wryly jaundiced text examine a dozen Christmas traditions with a decidedly wheezy ho-ho-ho.

Santa: The Man
Loose-fitting nylon beard, fake optical twinkle, cheap red suit, funny rummy smell when you sit on his lap. If he’s such a big shot, why is he drawing unemployment for eleven months of the year? Something scary and off-key about him, like one of those Stephen King clowns . . .
This long out-of-print classic is the perfect stocking-stuffer for any bah humbug.
