THE STORY: THE SANTALAND DIARIES is a brilliant evocation of what a slacker’s Christmas must feel like. Out of work, our slacker decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first, the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle-weary and bitter. Until a final Santa is ushered to the Santa Seat.
“A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy’s. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle. Destined to hold a place in the annals of American humor writing.” —NY Times. “A sardonic, merrily subversive tale—just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!” —NY Newsday. “A satirical brazenness that holds up next to Twain and Nathaniel West.” —The New Yorker. “THE SANTALAND DIARIES is quite possibly the thirty-one funniest pages of text published in the past quarter century …David Sedaris slays me.” —Seattle Weekly. “A caustic mix of J.D. Salinger and John Waters.” —Publishers Weekly. “A subversively cynical, misanthropic wit!” —Time Out NY.
For Mature Elf audiences – Rated PG 13.
