You Better Not Cry: Stories for Christmas : From the #1 bestselling author of Running with Scissors, Dry, and A Wolf at the Table comes a collection of stories about the one holiday we love to hate, and hate to love . . . You've eaten too much candy at Christmas . . . but have you ever eaten off the face of a six-foot stuffed Santa? You've seen gingerbread houses . . . but have you ever made your own gingerbread tenement? You've woken up with a hangover . . . but have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Augusten Burroughs has, and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection, he recounts Christmases past and present - as only he can. Mordantly funny, pathologically honest, and with a reckless disregard for his own dignity, Augusten reveals how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.
