The holidays are a time of traditions, rich food, presents and time spent with family. In other words, they are filled with cultural biases, unhealthy dietary choices, rape of the earth’s resources and painful hours of soul-crushing social conformity. Politically Correct Holiday Stories aims to break our addiction to these damaging paradigms.
A New York Times best seller when it was released in 1995, Politically Correct Holiday Stories follows on the heels of the other volumes in the best-selling Politically Correct Trilogy. With stories such as “’Twas the Night Before Solstice,” “Rudolph, the Nasally Empowered Reindeer” and the full-length “A Christmas Carol,” this book will help everyone celebrate the holidays in an inclusive, culturally sensitive way that is much more enjoyable than a school pageant.
As a bonus, this new electronic version also contains previously unpublished material: “Santa’s Ashes,” the true story of Santa’s hardscrabble childhood in an Irish ghetto on the North Pole (written with A.J. Jacobs); and the third chapter of James Finn Garner’s stupendous, colossal novel, Honk Honk, My Darling: A Rex Koko, Private Clown Mystery.
