(Book #47) David Sedaris - Holidays On Ice

David Sedaris is a master of the snappy and amusing short story, and his usual wit and talent for storytelling once again shines through in this compilation of Christmas stories, 'Holidays On Ice'. Sedaris spins his personal and familial anecdotes in such a way that it's hard not to relate in some capacity. In addition to these essay-like tales, we get a couple more pieces that humorously go beyond the scope of human normalcy and pushes his characters over the top, or likewise to a new low. David Sedaris is always a great read any time of the year, but one particular story about his experiences working as an elf at Macy's was particularly effective at bracing me for the most stressful and craziest time of the year!
