John Grisham’s Skipping Christmas doesn’t recognize this fact. The book portrays the over-the-top commercialism that many people live every day, but even more so at Christmas time. Indeed, it is set in a world in which this fact isn’t a fact at all. Skipping Christmas takes place in a white, upper middle class suburb where such things are barely mentioned.

One. The gate was packed with weary travelers, most of them standing and huddled along the walls because the meager allotment of plastic chairs had long since been taken. She would live in a lean-to with no plumbing, no electricity, no phone, and she was anxious to begin her journey. The flight would take her to Miami, then to Lima, then by bus for three days into the mountains, into another century. For the first time in her young and sheltered life, Blair would spend Christmas away from home. Her mother clutched her hand and tried to be strong. The good-byes had all been said.
От издателя:Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded shops, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents.
Skipping Christmas, by John Grisham, is a delight! It’s a heartfelt comedy about the mayhem and insanity often associated with Christmas traditions. With their only child away in the Peace Corps, then adding up Christmas in dollars and cents, it seemed like a good enough reason for Luther and Nora Krank to skip the whole affair and go on a cruise. I have enjoyed watching the movie Christmas with the Kranks at Christmas time for several years now, so when I heard about this book, I just had to get it! I’m a fan of John Grisham’s legal thrillers, so I was curious to see what a fiction book by him would be like. I enjoyed it! The writing was crisp, and descriptive.
