From Lewis Black, the uproarious and perpetually apoplectic New York Times bestselling author and Daily Show regular, comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday, Christmas.

Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth and goodwill toward all…but not for Lewis Black.

He says humbug to the Christmas traditions and trappings that make the holiday memorable. In I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas, his hilarious and sharply observed book about the holiday, Lewis lets loose on all things Yule. It’s a very personal look at what’s wrong with Christmas, seen through the eyes of “the most engagingly pissed-off comedian ever” (Stephen King).

From his own Christmas rituals—which have absolutely nothing to do with presents or the Christmas tree or Rudolph—to his own eccentric experiences with the holiday (from a USO Christmas tour to playing Santa Claus in full regalia), I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas is classic Lewis Black: funny, razor-sharp, insightful, and honest.

You’ll never think of Christmas in the same way.
