“Those of us who approach the holidays with more trepidation than glee finally have a holiday book to call our own! Humor writers both classic (Robert Benchley, Corey Ford, James Thurber) and contemporary (David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, Dave Barry, Jonathan Ames) weigh in on the dark side of the holidays.”
