Holidays On Ice

By Sedaris, David




David Sedaris's beloved holiday collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story. Along with such favoritesas the diaries of a Macy's elf and the annals of two very competitive families, are Sedaris's tales of tardy trick-or-treaters ("Us and Them"); the difficulties of explaining the Easter Bunny to the French ("Jesus Shaves"); what to do when you've been locked out in a snowstorm ("Let It Snow"); the puzzling Christmas traditions of other nations ("Six to Eight Black Men"); what Halloween at the medical examiner's looks like ("The Monster Mash"); and a barnyard secret Santa scheme gone awry ("Cow and Turkey").No matter what your favorite holiday, you won't want to miss celebrating it with the author who has been called "one of the funniest writers alive" (Economist ).

HOLIDAYS ON ICE: WITH SIX NEW STORIES, INCLUDING ONE NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED

Sedaris, David

Boston, MA: Little, Brown & Company, 2008. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Boston, MA: Little, Brown & Company, 2008. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 166 pages. New and Expanded Edition of the author's third collection of essays and short stories. Now considered a contemporary classic. The first appearance of the title in this edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent printings. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition Thus is now scarce. Presents, in a handsome new edition, David Sedaris' "Holidays On Ice". All of the now-classic stories originally published as "Holidays On Ice" (1997), plus six new, full-fledged pieces. Christmas holiday stories and misadventures, they tell the Darker Side of the lighter side of the greatest holiday in the world, from the point-of-view of the then-struggling, jobless, and impoverished David Sedaris. "SantaLand Diaries", Sedaris' account of his time working as a SantaLand elf at Macy's Department Store, remains one of his most beloved pieces. It captures what Christmas has become in America in a way that most Americans say it has become, but have not been able to put into words with the same poignance, irony, and humor as Sedaris has: A vast commercial rip-off/enterprise, as countless parents take their kids to "SantaLand" day after day to create "The"Spirit of Christmas" Experience. It can be read again and again without losing any of its bite. "You are not a dancer. If you were a real dancer, you wouldn't be here. You're an elf, and you're going to wear panties like an elf" (Macy's Elf Trainer to David Sedaris). An absolute "must-have" title for David Sedaris collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "A loner by choice, David Sedaris". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The lonesome recipient is named. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Edition Thus/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Sedaris is a genuine rarity among superstar-writers: He spends time with every single person who has taken the trouble of going to his reading and waiting patiently in line (which are "circle-around-the-block" long) to get his or her book signed. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID SEDARIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0316035904.

Boston, MA: Little, Brown & Company, 1997. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Boston, MA: Little, Brown & Company, 1997. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 123 pages. The author's third collection of essays and short stories. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First-State DJ cover shows Santa Claus urinating in a public toilet, an image that offended a lot of people, forcing the publisher to replace it with the much safer image of a drink on the rocks for all other subsequent editions. The First Edition is now rare. Presents, in its true First Edition format, David Sedaris' "Holidays On Ice". His imperishable holiday classic. All of the pieces are Christmas holiday stories and misadventures, the Darker Side of the lighter side of the greatest holiday in the world, from the point-of-view of the then-struggling, jobless, and impoverished David Sedaris. "SantaLand Diaries", Sedaris' account of his time working as a SantaLand elf at Macy's Department Store, remains one of his most beloved pieces.

You're an elf, and you're going to wear panties like an elf" (Macy's Elf Trainer to David Sedaris) . An absolute "must-have" title for David Sedaris collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing/First-State DJ (Santa Claus Urinating) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are in innumerable subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. </b></i> One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID SEDARIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0316779989.
