National Public Radio commentator White (Mama Makes Up Her Mind) collects her short stories, which she's read on air over the years. In "The Progress of Deglutition," Sally's Thanksgiving is cut short when her husband asks for a divorce out of the blue, while in "Return to Sender," a woman tries to order items from the 1909 Sears catalog reprint to keep her memory alive. While these stories are not cheery Christmas tales-several don't seem to have even a slight relationship with any holiday whatsoever-they are all interesting and well written. For most short story collections.
