Christmas Stories

By Tesdell, Diana Secker

New York: Everyman's Library, 2007. Christmas Stories is a treasury of short fiction by great writers of the past two centuries—from Dickens and Tolstoy to John Updike and Alice Munro. As a literary subject, Christmas has inspired everything from intimate domestic dramas to fanciful flights of the imagination, and the full range of its expression is represented in this wonderfully engaging anthology. Goblins frolic in the graveyard of an early Dickens tale and a love-struck ghost disrupts a country estate in Elizabeth Bowen’s "Green Holly" The plight of the less fortunate haunts Chekhov’s "Vanka" and Willa Cather’s "The Burglar’s Christmas" but takes a boisterously comic turn in Damon Runyon’s "Dancing Dan’s Christmas" and in John Cheever’s "Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor" From Vladimir Nabokov’s intensely moving story of a father’s grief in "Christmas" to Truman Capote’s hilarious yet heartbreaking "A Christmas Memory," from Grace Paley’s Jewish girl starring in the Christmas pageant in "The Loudest Voice" to the dysfunctional family ski holiday in Richard Ford’s “"Crèche" each of the stories gathered here is imbued with Christmas spirit (of one kind or another), and all are richly and indelibly entertaining..

In Flanders Field: And Other Poems of the First World War

By Busby, Brian [ed]

London: Arcturus Publishing, 2005. "Few people alive today had direct experience of the First World War, and yet it seems embedded in the collective consciousness of the combatant nations as a warning to future generations of the futility of military conflict. Our awareness of the terror, loneliness and desperate hope endured by the men who fought this war we owe to the quality of the art that came out of it, not least the poetry. Despite the passage of time, its ability to move and inspire us remains undimmed, as this superb new compilation richly demonstrates. Selected from the work of soldiers killed in action--starting with Rupert Brooke in 1915 and ending with the tragic loss of Wilfred Owen seven days before the Armistice--the poems capture a broad range of emotions, contemplations and states of mind, ranging from anthems about the brutality of war to wistful evocations of home and loved ones left behind. This collection showcases some of the best poetry to emerge from the conflict and stands as a worthy memorial to the collective talent and sacrifice of those who gave their lives." I92p.illus. Small format book in blue cloth with gilden decoration in box sleeve. A nice gift book.. First Thus. Decorative Cloth. New. Boxed.
