I received an early Christmas gift — Hank Stuever‘s wonderful and hilarious look at over-the-top Americana Christmas in Frisco, Texas, Tinsel: A Search for America’s Christmas Present. Stuever writes like I’d like to write some day: witty, smart, compassionate, and snarky, all at the same time without ever going over the top.
And, by the way, the amazing cover photo of the book is by Courtney Perry, who provided the photos for this blog and who has a special place in my heart. She sent me the book, too. 🙂
