Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris (migrated from bookblogger)

If you’re in need of a sardonic, comedic reality break from the Thanksgiving-till-Christmas holiday glitter and forced cheer, this little book by David Sedaris is the perfect antidote.  In this book are 6 vignettes/short stories set at Thanksgiving/Christmastime which all start as familiar scenes and generally progress to the outrageous.   I have to confess that as someone who is usually not happy with “outrageous,” I did laugh (and sometimes groan) out loud at some of the lines in this book.

There is no character development and probably all-too-blatant moral lessons, but it s a delightful, indulgent respite from making latkes or stuffing stockings!
