I picked this as a Christmas book for our book club. They truely hated it. The trouble is there is a tale which ends with a baby being killed by being put in the tumble drier. It is the second story and most of them didnt appreciate the black comedy of this and stopped reading. which was a shame as there were much better stories after this. However, I do think he didn't quite get the balance between humour and being macabre at all right. ( )

I picked this book up super excited that David Sedaris had written another holiday collections. To my surprise it was the exact same book as Holidays on Ice but with a different title. Tricky, tricky. I love his writing so I would recommend, but beware that Holidays on Ice is the same book as SantaLand Diaries. ( )

Diverting enough. It put me in mind of a modern day Stephen Leacock. It lacked the warmth and affection of Garrison Keillor, though. ( )

Like Mike Birbiglia, Dave Sedaris is best enjoyed by listening to him tell his stories. He is a wonderful humorist and storyteller and is a frequent contributor to NPR's This American Life. You can find the audio of Santaland Diaries by searching This American Life's archives or on YouTube. ( )

If I was a Christmas elf, my nickname would still be Kneels. Or maybe Ranch...
