Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Savor the season’s tales of ghosts, ‘magical interventions, ordinary encounters that turn out to be not ordinary at all, small miracles, and salutes to the coming of the light.’” Elle
“Award-winning author Winterson’s celebration of the twelve days of Christmas is a surprising and cheering addition to her work…A delectable read for long winter nights.” BBC
“Dark, otherworldly, and (trademark Winterson) wickedly funny…[A] holiday treasure…to be pulled out on a December night, fireside, and read aloud.” New York Times Book Review
“Winterson has presented us with unexpected holiday cheer…Perfect for stuffing the stockings of your eccentric relatives…The magical tales are all exuberant.” Washington Post
“Magic…Leave politics at the door, watch Elf for the tenth time, and begin the tradition of reading Christmas Days—to yourself, to your loved ones.” Amazon.com
“Spooky, inventive, funny…Winterson’s mixed bag of fictional treats has a nineteenth-century charm much needed in the grim twenty-first.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Spooky, clever, funny, and poignant, Winterson’s supernatural tales refresh our appreciation of what it truly means to give, to love, and to share joy.” Booklist
