Overview

Holiday stories and recipes by the New York Times bestselling author of Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?—“otherworldly and wickedly funny” (New York Times Book Review).

For years Jeanette Winterson has loved writing a new story at Christmas time, inspired by the mysteries and traditions of the season. Here she brings together twelve of her funny and bold tales, along with twelve delicious recipes for the Twelve Days of Christmas.

From jovial spirits to a donkey with a golden nose, a haunted house to a SnowMama, Winterson’s original and imaginative stories encompass the childlike and spooky wonder of Christmas. These tales pair perfectly with Winterson’s original recipes, or ones contributed by literary friends including Ruth Rendell, Kathy Acker, and others. Enjoy the season of peace and goodwill, mystery, and a little bit of magic with this “holiday treasure…to be pulled out on a December night, fireside, and read aloud” (New York Times Book Review).


“If you crave the mystery, the family rituals, and the special victuals of Christmastime, you’ll savor . . . bold, revelatory feminist writer Jeanette Winterson’s Christmas Days.” —Elle
