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.

    " This book I am listening to not reading. It's okay, but I doubt I will listen to it again. I have put this book on hold. I have other books that I would rather read and listen to at this time. "

    " Kinda funny....for about two chapters. Black is better seen than rread. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carl | 2/3/2011

    " The same anger and hilarity you'd expect from Lewis Black in convenient (audio) book form. He reads the book from Audible which makes it even better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/15/2011

    " Alright, to be honest, I skipped a few pages. A few diatribes I could have lived without. However, he expresses many of my same opinions well. Also, the clincher was the last chapter: Christmas entertaining the troops in Iraq & Afghanistan. Seriously inspiring! "

    " A quick and fun read. I love Lewis Black's comedy and his book is no different. It's sharp, hilarious, and full of the classic rants and cursing you have come to know and love. "

    " I love Lewis Black! Which is why I grabbed this on my last library trip. As I am reading and can hear him saying all this stuff. LOL! I especially enjoyed the last chapter on his USO tour entertaining the troops! A very quick read. "
