CHRISTMAS BLUES: Behind the Holiday Mask
An Anthology
edited by Zelda Leah Gatuskin, Michelle Miller and Harry Willson

Short stories, poetry, and essays explore the down side of the holiday season. Some whimsical, some bitter, some using humor and satire -- all taking a clear honest look at traditions, memories, dysfunctional family life, cultural alienation, and the commercialization of the mythology of Christmas.

I laughed, I cried, I was often touched, I was sometimes depressed and occasionally disgusted, but I was always absorbed as I read this charming anthology. I knew I would be recommending it to clients, to friends, or to anyone who has ever experienced that disgruntled feeling during the Holidays.
--Katie Fashing, Counselor/Therapist
