You Better Not Cry
You Better Not Cry by Augusten Burroughs
You've eaten too much candy at Christmas… but have you ever eaten the face off a six-footstuffed Santa? You've seen gingerbread houses… but have you ever made your own gingerbread tenement? You've woken up with a hangover… but have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Augusten Burroughs has, and in this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection he recounts Christmases past and present-as only he could. With gimleteyed witand illuminated prose, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.
