Product description

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!

Review quote

Acidly camp, bitchily kitsch and slickly satirical packages of out-there humour...very funny. Sunday Times This is a man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake. Observer His best, funniest, most satisfying book. Time Out Sedaris writes with a gentle but unfailing acuity and a keen eye for the ridiculous ... extremely funny. Sunday Times
