Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm

by Stella Gibbons

Paperback £5.99, with 10% discount for members of the book group

A book with a Christmas theme, but not maybe the Christms we would wish...

A glorious collection of stories from the author of Cold Comfort Farm. The title story tells of a typical Christmas at the farm before the coming of Flora Poste. It is a parody of the worst sort of family Christmas: Adam Lambsbreath dresses up as Father Christmas in two of Judith's red shawls.

There are unsuitable presents, unpleasant insertions into the pudding and Aunt Ada Doom orders Amos to carve the turkey, adding: 'Ay, would it were a vulture, 'twere more fitting!
