Overview

Las Christmas: Favorite Latino Authors Share Their Holiday Memories by Esmeralda Santiago

Twenty-five celebrated Latino writers delight and move us with their recollections of Christmas in this splendid holiday extravaganza.
From Julia Alvarez's tale of how Santicló delivered a beloved uncle from political oppression to Junot Díaz's story of his own uneasy assimilation on his first Christmas in America, to Sandra Cisneros's poignant memories of her late father's holiday dinners, Las Christmas gives us true stories from writers of many traditions—memories of Christmas and Hanukkah that vividly capture the pride and pain, joy and heartbreak, that so often accompany the holidays in the Americas.
Richly illustrated and embellished with songs and poems, along with recipes for an unforgettable Christmas dinner—from traditional sweet tamales to Puerto Rican asopao (stew) and coquito (coconut eggnog)—this is an enduring treasury of Latino writing to read again and again.
A heartwarming holiday gift.
