A brilliant evocation of an out-of-work actor’s experience as an elf at Macy’s Department Store. “A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy’s. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle. Destined to hold a place in the annals of American humor writing.” – The New York Times. “A sardonic, merrily subversive tale – just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!” – Newsday. “A satirical brazenness that holds up next to Twain and Nathanael West.” – The New Yorker. “The SantaLand Diaries is quite possibly the thirty-one funniest pages of text published in the past quarter century … David Sedaris slays me.” – Seattle Weekly. “A caustic mix of J.D. Salinger and John Waters.” – Publishers Weekly. “A subversively misanthropic wit!” – Time Out.
