No matter what your favorite holiday, you won't want to miss celebrating it with the author who has been called "one of the funniest writers alive" ("Economist"").
David Sedarispublished this book to support 826NYC, a nonprofit tutoring center in Brooklyn, New York that helps students ages six to eighteen develop their writing skills through free writing workshops, publishing projects, and one-on-one help with homework and English-language learning. Sedaris is the author of the internationally bestselling "Barrel Fever, Naked, Holidays on Ice, Me Talk Pretty One Day, " "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, "and "SquirrelSeeks Chipmunk."
AMY SEDARIS, Paul Dinello, and Stephen Colbert met at Chicago's Second City and have been collaborators ever since. They have developed two separate series for Comedy Central: "Exit 57" and "Strangers with Candy". In addition to TV work, Dinello and Colbert are successful screenwriters.
"...Sedaris has as much fun as is humanly (or elfishly) possible in his behind-the-scenes look at this particularly American tradition of sitting on Santa's lap and asking for stuff...Part of the fun is hearing the reaction of the New Yorkers who have to wait in line, pay for Santa photos, and generally go mad in the Christmas frenzy that Macy's embodies. And Sedaris, never quite who he seems to be, has the nasty tone of his commentary down perfectly."
