If you know David, you’ll know that these stories are hilarious. By these stories, I mean the several stories in this book. There’s the story about being an elf at Macy’s in New York City during the Christmas season. I found this story rather humorous. I can imagine that the world of Santa Land in Macy’s is rife with interesting things.

There’s a story, a Christmas letter really, about a family experiencing a somewhat funny, but dark, Christmas season and tragedy.

There’s the story about the whore who comes to Christmas at David’s, when he is young. David’s family is hilarious, you’ll enjoy this one.

David also speaks of nativity plays and how bad they usually are.

What I liked

David is hilarious, so I will pretty much read anything he writes. I still want to hang out with him sometime. I think he’d be great fun to hang out with and just listen to him talk about his family. Christmas can be hilarious, and tragic, which David has really covered with these stories.

What I didn’t like

I would have liked more stories about David, but overall it’s a great little collection of stories by David.


David, you’re right, nativity plays usually aren’t great.

Weigh in
