The Worst Noel

Genre: Essays, Nonfiction; Author: Various Authors; Publisher: HarperCollins

Santa haters like Neal Pollack and Cintra Wilson share their best horror stories in The Worst Noel, an uneven essay collection aimed at those of us who flee our families’ homes on Dec. 26. There are some undercooked turkeys here, like Cynthia Kaplan’s irritating rant about a deer that hits her car (”Donner Is Dead”). But high notes like Ann Patchett’s ”Birthdays” make this a fine stocking stuffer for naughty cranks everywhere. And Jews, at least those sick of being told to have a merry Christmas year after year, will love it!
