Why We Love This

Christmas Eve by Alastair Cooke. London: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1952. First printing. Three eccentric adventures linked by the theme of Christmas Eve, from a beloved broadcaster. The first, set in New York, has Father Christmas forced to drive a cab. The second concerns a boy's escape from Hollywood to the real world of Connecticut. The third tells us the doom of all fathers who neglect their daughters on this magical night. Illustrated by Marc Simont, of Thurber fame.
