A collection of surprising, disarming and ‘extremely funny’ essays from the internationally bestselling author of Me Talk Pretty One Day (Sunday Times)
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!
‘Sedaris writes with a gentle but unfailing acuity and a keen eye for the ridiculous … extremely funny’ –Sunday Times
