Description

For years Jeanette Winterson has loved writing a new story at Christmastime, and here she brings together 12 of her brilliantly imaginative, funny and bold tales. For the 12 Days of Christmas - a time of celebration, sharing and giving - she offers these 12 plus one: a personal story of her own Christmas memories.

These tales give the listener a portal into the spirit of the season, where time slows down and magic starts to happen. From trees with mysterious powers to a tinsel baby that talks, philosophical fairies to flying dogs, a haunted house and a disappearing train, Winterson's innovative stories encompass the childlike and spooky wonder of Christmas.

Perfect for listening to by the fire with loved ones or while travelling home for the holidays. Enjoy the season of peace and goodwill, mystery and a little bit of magic courtesy of one of our most fearless and accomplished writers.

Review quote

'Winterson's winter tales unfailingly succeed in their endeavour to leave you aglow.' -- The Guardian 'These funny, beguiling tales ... pack some serious literary clout.' -- The Observer 'There is a lightness of touch and passages of thoughtful contemplation that befit the season. A perfect stocking filler.' -- The Daily Express
