Thirteen months to Christmas

£9.99

Product description

Thirteen Months To Christmas is a collection of thirteen short stories: one for Christmas, one for each month of the year and the final one for the following Christmas. In this fun and festive gift book, you can find the ghost of a lover's great-aunt in a wardrobe, curl up with Killer Ken in his winter garden, or listen to Catriona heralding disaster over the airwaves. How about picking up a strange old lady from the airport, as Jasmine does, and finding she tells you the meaning of your life? Another month, you'll meet a hideous but magical boy beside a sun-drenched river; next, you'll discover you're pregnant by a man in a draughty teepee. You can wash your mother's hair in the deep south while dreaming of murder, cower in rural Sudan terrified by Ronald Reagan, or find that Death stops you getting to the seaside at Scarborough. This is a gift book for the whole year. Buy it for someone you love. Or for yourself. Or both.

Signed by the author.
