6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Coffee Chronicles on December 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
A little present to myself last year after seeing if featured in Oprah's magazine. A collection of some heavy hitters and some unknown's, along with a nice endorsement inside the flap about Christmas being the warmest of seasons, (or something to that effect). I couldn't wait to curl up with this one.... This book is rich in examples of human frailty; insignificance, tragedy, irony, greed, addiction, perversion, and probably others, (I still haven't gotten through all of the stories). About the closest I have come to any Christmas like feelings is the hope that I hold out that at least one of the stories will have some uplifting tone, (I'm about 75% through.) Intellectualism aside, a thoroughly depressing read... I have never wanted to steer clearer of my fellow man. On the other hand, if you prefer misery, this should be good company.

I wish I could read the book before buying it. This book is really bad in my opinion.
