This charming Christmas story begins with a dilemma: a writer has been asked by The New York Times to write a story that will appear in the paper on Christmas morning. The man agrees, but he has a problem: how do you write an unsentimental Christmas story? He unburdens himself to his friend at his local cigar shop (which Paul Auster fans might recognise from his film Smoke), a colourful character called Auggie Wren. 'A Christmas story? Is that all?' Auggie counters. 'If you buy me lunch, my friend, I'll tell you the best Christmas story you've ever heard. And I guarantee every word of it is true.' What follows is utterly beguiling - a story involving a blind woman, a lost wallet, and a Christmas dinner - in which everything is turned upside down and the lines between truth and story telling become brilliantly blurred. This lovely hardback Christmas gift book edition is beautifully illustrated by Astrid Lindgren Award-winner Isol (Marisol Misenta).
