Holidays on Ice

Stories

By David Sedaris
Narrated by David Sedaris, Ann Magnuson & Amy Sedaris / 4 hours 19 minutes

David Sedaris's beloved holiday collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story.

Along with such favorites as the diaries of a Macy's elf and the annals of two very competitive families, are Sedaris's tales of tardy trick-or-treaters ("Us and Them"); the difficulties of explaining the Easter Bunny to the French ("Jesus Shaves"); what to do when you've been locked out in a snowstorm ("Let It Snow"); the puzzling Christmas traditions of other nations ("Six to Eight Black Men"); what Halloween at the medical examiner's looks like ("The Monster Mash"); and a barnyard secret Santa scheme gone awry ("Cow and Turkey").

No matter what your favorite holiday, you won't want to miss celebrating it with the author who has been called "one of the funniest writers alive" (Economist).

“His account of working as a department store elf for two Christmas seasons was immediately one of the most popular stories ever broadcast on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. . . . It is with pleasure that we broadcast it again today.”

Ira Glass, This American Life

Reviews

“Frank and scintillating . . . what makes Sedaris's writing captivating is his ability to take everyday events and spin them into a yarn. . . . His trials and tribulations are placed under a microscope for our amusement.”

Variety

“This is is comedy, pure and simple, with occasional moments of surprising sweetness.”

Miami Herald

The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.
