Holidays on Ice

By David Sedaris (Audiobook, 2001)
Holidays on Ice collects six of David Sedaris's most profound Christmas stories into one slender volume perfect for use as a last-minute coaster or ice scraper. This drinking man's companion can be enjoyed by the warmth of a raging fire, the glow of a brilliantly decorated tree, or even in the backseat of a van or police car. It should be read with your eyes, felt with your heart, and heard only when spoken to. It should, in short, behave much like a book. And, oh, what a book it is!

  • "Sedaris's essays are written to be heard, so listen up-he just keeps getting better." -AudioFile Magazine on DRESS YOUR FAMILY

    "I love David Sedaris. I love his weird girlie-man voice and his weirder sense of humor. I love him even though his audio books nearly slay me. In fact, they would come with a warning: 'Remain still while listening. Do not attempt to operate heavy machinery or even use ordinary motor skills'."
    -New York Post on BARREL FEVER

  • "Sedaris is the closest thing the literary world has these days to a rock star." (New York Times).

  • "Hilarious, elegant, and surprisingly moving tales of all too ordinary madness. . . . Sedaris is a complete master of the form."
    (Washington Post Book World).

  • "Sedaris's droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices makes him one of the greatest humorists writing today." (Chicago Tribune).
