You Better Not Cry: Stories for Christmas by Augusten Burroughs (Book Review 202)

You Better Not Cry: Stories for Christmas (Hardcover)

~ Augusten Burroughs

Another wonderful collection of essays from Augusten Burroughs.  No matter what your thoughts on his personal life, this collection of short stories will move you and make you laugh.  He can take every day situations and make them magical.  A perfect read for the season.  I just wish it were longer.
Product Description

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 wit and illuminated prose, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the worst in us and sometimes, just sometimes, the very, very best.
