McMillan Palgrave
You’ve eaten too much candy at Christmas…but have you ever eaten the face off a six-footstuffed Santa? You’ve seen gingerbread houses…but have you ever made your own gingerbread tenement? You’ve woken up with a hangover…but have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Augusten Burroughs has, and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection he recounts Christmases past and present—as only he could. With gimleteyed wit and illuminated prose, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.

Funny, wry, and sometimes painful, like all of Burroughs' writing. In the top of this genre.

If you enjoyed "Running with Scissors" you'll definitely enjoy this book. I couldn't put it down.

Unfortunately, I couldn't shake the feeling that he heavily embellished the last story. I found it too dramatic and not worth ending the book with.
