A Christmas Story

48 pages
Mcsweeney's Literary Arts Fund
Latkes are potato pancakes served at Hanukah. Lemony Snicket is an alleged children's author. For the first time in literary history, these two elements are combined in one book. People who are interested in either or both of these things will find this book so enjoyable it will feel as if Hanukah is being celebrated for several years, rather than eight nights. People who are interested in neither of these things will get what they deserve.

The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming, is hardcover, foil-stamped, and full of colorful illustrations, well-suited for giving, receiving, or clutching selfishly in trembling hands.
