Skipping Christmas

A slender, all-American Christmas Carol in which an accountant sums up the costs and aggravations of his customary family Christmas and decides to take a cruise, instead. This strange, half-hearted little book seems unsure of its own sympathies, and probably would have stayed in a desk drawer had the draw of its author's name been less conspicuous.
