    One thought on “Literary Christmas Loth”

    1. Although some of the stories in this book might be described as "downers," they're all good. Authors include Italo Calvino, Annie Dillard, and Raymond Carver. But my two favorites are by lesser-known (at least to me) authors: The H Street Sledding Record by Ron Carlson, and The Birds for Christmas by Mark Richard. (The title of the latter story refers to the Alfred Hitchcock movie, which might give you some idea of what it's like.) I heartily recommend this book to anyone looking for some season [...]

    2. My Original Notes (1997):So-so. So many of the short stories were depressing! I enjoyed these, though:Bless Me, Father, for I Have Sinned by Ray BradburyAuggie Wren's Christmas Story by Paul AusterChristmas for Sassafrass, Cypress & Indigo by Ntozake ShangeChristmas by Harper LeeWhere You'll Find Me by Ann BeattieThe Night of the Magi by Leo RostenThe H Street Sledding Record by Ron CarlsonMy Current Thoughts:I no longer own this book, so I can't go back and re-read these stories. After 20 y [...]

    3. Decent collection of Christmas/ winter stories although it was missing a few modern favorites (such as Capote's "A Christmas Memory" which is so darn good). I skimmed through some but really loved (unsurprisingly) Annie Dillard's folky legend holiday feast, Ray Bradbury's surprise sci-fi twist, and Raymond Carver's unsettling characters (he wrote one of my favorite short stories "A Small, Good Thing" and this reminded me to read more of him).

    4. I forgot who bought me this book many years ago, but I picked it up and have already read Tobias Woolf, Ray Bradbury, and Raymond Carver stories. Good stuff.
