The Faber Book of Christmas

Ed. Simon Rae

You could ‘book a holiday coinciding with a Test match in the Southern Hemisphere, and leave the English Christmas far behind’, writes Simon Rae. ‘But then, of course, we’d miss it, wouldn’t we?’ Starting with ‘Christmas: For and Against’ (Bah! Humbug! from Scrooge, while Betjeman sings of ‘tissued fripperies’), the anthology is in 21 chapters, with poetry, prose and drama on themes such as food, war, Christmas in prison and Santa Claus. Bound in patterned linen.
