You Better Not Cry by Augusten Burroughs

Cry.jpg augusten burroughs.jpg

For people who would prefer a less wholesome sort of Christmas story, Augusten Burroughs' You Better Not Cry delivers. The author of Running With Scissors and Sellevision has a series of short stories centered around the holiday. Burroughs uses the same shocking and irreverent wit in memoirs of Christmas past as he does in his earlier work. In one of the more memorable stories he describes an instance when he ate the face off of a life size statue of Saint Nick. The stories are both laugh out loud funny and terribly sad at times. Fans of David Sedaris will appreciate the wry tone of this book.
