A Dixie Christmas: Holiday Stories from the South's Best Writers

Overview

These fine-spun stories—wrapped in watercolor illustrations—transport us straight to the heart of the holidays. In tales that echo our own reminiscences, eleven storytellers share the magic, melancholy, and mirth of the season. And after the icicle lights have been unplugged, the tree has been wrestled to the curb, and the last sugar cookie has been eaten, these glimpses of Christmases large and small, harried and hopeful, will call to mind the time of year when, for a brief moment, everything seems right with ...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This third volume from the editors of Christmas in the South and A Very Southern Christmas features such notable Dixie authors as Ellen Gilchrist, Rick Bass, and NPR commentator Bailey White. In Gilchrist's "A Southern Christmas," a woman takes a brief, nostalgic look back on Christmas during World War II, when the best present was a new wardrobe for her doll. Short story writer Lynn Barrett's tale revolves around lebkuchen ("love cookies"), central to a family's holiday traditions. Not all of the stories in this uneven collection are in the heartwarming holiday vein, however, so readers looking for a charming Fannie Flagg-style holiday read may be disappointed. Regional libraries will want a copy, but this is an optional purchase for most short story collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Very misleading

    This was very disappointing, and I'm so glad I didn't give it to anyone for a gift. I would not want them to think this was a good read.
    For someone looking for warm, southern style stories, this was a real
    let down.
