Ten hilarious short stories for anyone who hates the holidays!
The holiday season is one of laughter, fun, generosity, and time with friends and family . . . or so it’s supposed to be. But we all know that the holiday season can actually be absolutely depressing, no matter how hard we try. So from the wit of humorist Alex Bernstein comes this “miserable” collection of short stories based around Christmas and Hanukkah. Included are short stories, such as:
- “Blue Christmas”
- “The Smoking Lounge”
- “Brownie Mix”
- “The #$@!# Bicycle Boys Save Christmas, Again!”
- And more!
"Offers tongue-in-cheek escapism in the form of quirky, thought-provoking tales, that just might prompt you to appreciate something about your own holiday experiences . . . . the yin to the Hallmark Channel’s yang, with hefty doses of seasonal satire presented in the form of 20 short stories you can read while the babka is baking or anytime you need a respite from manufactured holiday merriment." —Geek Insider
“Alex Bernstein writes comedy you could hang in a gallery.”
—Dylan Brody, comedian and author of Laughs Last and The Modern Depression Guidebook
"An ever-intriguing menagerie of colorful characters that will keep you grinning." —BIBA (Best Indie Book Award)
