This book is an example of a new literary form, the story cycle. Although every story is separate from all the others, they are related by the book's structure, since they are arranged according to the age of the central character. This form enables ...
the author to explore a wider variety of themes and facets of the human condition. The stories vary from youth to old age, from male to female perspectives, and from comedy to tragedy. "A Christmas Story" recounts an elemental struggle between two wills. It is a story stripped of all superfluities, including the excessive commercialism of Christmas as it is celebrated today, in order to explore, via its very simple but powerful tale, the original meaning of Christmas. There are also two appendices of poetry. The first contains "The Quest for the Dancing Mushrooms," a miniature epic poem that is sure to delight children and adults of all ages.
