THE PENGUIN BOOK OF CHRISTMAS STORIES | HARDCOVER
A collection of Christmas stories, edited by Jessica Harrison

The ultimate festive anthology of the best Christmas stories of all time, selected from around the world - and now in clothbound edition.

Stories to delight both old and young and a beautiful addition to your coffee table or bookshelf this Christmas.

Truman Capote makes whisky-soaked fruitcake in Alabama; Laurie Lee slides across a frozen pond in Gloucestershire; and Shirley Jackson is outwitted by a wily Santa Claus at the bank. Ghosts haunt the Christmases of Muriel Spark and Elizabeth Bowen, while Dostoyevsky, Daphne du Maurier and Italo Calvino take a cynical view of the season and Selma Lagerlof and Angela Carter celebrate its miracles. Ranging from Cork to Lagos to the Wild West, and from Paris to San Paolo to outer space, this is Christmas as imagined by some of the greatest short-story writers of all time.
