A Christmas Anthology
Edited by Simon Danes
Publisher:St Mark's Press
The description on the cover shows that this title contains short stories, poetry and seasonal customs and facts, and together they make for an entertaining read, highly suitable for a gift that can be dipped into at random.
I had never thought ‘Whatever Became of Tiny Tim?’ and the John Mortimer story was somewhat of a shock! Neither that nor the Dickens and Trollope stories were familiar to me although the authors are favourites of mine.
Many of the poems gave a warm feeling of familiarity, but not all, and the ‘customs and facts’ contained some real eye-openers. I enjoyed it and the fact that £1 from each copy sold goes to Traidcraft should be an extra incentive to buy it for yourself and for gifts.
