I was happy to receive this as a Christmas gift, and enjoyed the first essay, but have now put the book aside for several months as I prefer to read Christmas stories a bit closer to Christmastime.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375701699, Paperback)

En esta espléndida extravagancia literaria, veinticino de los más conocidos escritores latinos nos agradan y nos conmueven con sus recuerdos navideños.

El cuento de Julia Álvarez nos enseña como Santicló libró de opresión política a su querido tío. Junot Díaz recuerda su inquieta asimilación a un nuevo país al pasar su primera Navidad en los Estados Unidos. Sandra Cisneros sigue con las memorias nostálgicas de las sabrosuras navideñas que preparó su papá. Las Christmas nos trae verdaderas historias de las muy distintas tradiciones de varios escritores--historias que vivamente captan el orgullo, el dolor, la alegría, y la pena que siempre acompañan las Navidades en todas las Américas.

Magníficamente ilustrado y adornado con canciones y recetas--desde tamales dulces tradicionales hasta asopao puertorriqueño--para unas fiestas inolvidables.

Un sabroso y alentador regalo de Navidad.

Con 26 ilustraciones de José Ortega
