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.. Hardcover. New/New.

Love in the Snow

By Papadiamantis Alexandros

Limni,Evvia,Greece: Denise Harvey, 1993. English Translation with Greek Text 'Love in the Snow', written in 1896, is one of Papadiamandis's most poignant tales. Zissimos Lorenzatos writes in his introductory note to this monograph: 'The snow which covers the hero in 'Love in the Snow', set on the island of Skiathos, birthplace of Alexandros Papadiamandis (1851-1911), runs parallel, one could say, with the snow falling 'all over Ireland' in Joyce's 'The Dead', or indeed the snow which in distant Russia whitens Chéchov's coachman of the short story 'Heartache', who, inconsolable over the recent loss of his son, was unable, among so many people that day, to unburden his grief to anyone but his own horse while unharnessing it the same evening in the stable after the day's work. All three short stories, tragedies of man's loneliness , constitute, each in its own way, three characteristic landmarks in world literature.'. Softcover. Very Good. Illus. by translated by Janet Coggin and Zissimos Lorenzatos.
