Summary
  • Twenty-five celebrated Latino writers delight and move us with their recollections of Christmas in this holiday extravaganza. From Julia Alvarez's tale of how Santiclo delivered a beloved uncle from political oppression to Junot Diaz's story of his own uneasy assimilation on his first Christmas in America, to Sandra Cisneros's poignant memories of her late father's holiday dinners, Las Christmas gives us true stories from writers of many traditions - memories of Christmas and Hanukkah that vividly capture the pride and pain, joy and heart-break, that so often accompany the holidays in the Americas
  • Richly illustrated and embellished with songs and poems, along with recipes for an unforgettable Christmas dinner - from traditional sweet tamales to Puerto Rican asopao (stew) and coquito (coconut eggnog) - this is an enduring treasury of Latino writing
