- 10+ in stock
A Christmas institution that grew from a humble pamphlet distributed to the author’s friends, John Julius Norwich’s Christmas Crackers collated the finest and funniest facts and trivia of the past year into one charmingly produced volume. This attractive gift book contains the final list compiled by Norwich as well as the best selections from the previous fifty years, selected by his daughter.
In 1969, John Julius Norwich, the legendary popular historian, gathered together the favourite things he'd come across in the last 365 days into one short charming pamphlet. Initially just a treat for his friends, it rapidly turned into a huge word-of-mouth success. And soon the arrival of John Julius Norwich's latest 'Christmas Cracker' became as essential a part of the English Christmas experience as holly and mistletoe.
Norwich had a brilliant eye for a story and telling detail, and his Crackers are full of jokes, warmth and wit. Here in one bumper book is his final and 50th Christmas Cracker, alongside all the very best bits as picked out by his daughter Artemis Cooper. This is the perfect Christmas gift.
