The Twelve Terrors of Christmas

by Edward Gorey Illustrator and John Updike Author

Edward Gorey’s deranged illustrations of Yuletide mayhem and John Updike’s wryly jaundiced text examine a dozen Christmas traditions with grim sarcasm and gothic imagery. Santa is creepy, reindeer are scary, and the constant sound of carols is oppressive. Now back in print, this tiny classic is a stocking-stuffer for any scrooge or grinch.
