  • “There are no days more full than those we go back to. All those Christmases collide into each other and my memory is decorated by a series of mirrors, flashing light into chambers of sound and colour . . . the briquettes sparking red-layered on the fire, the crinkling of the ridiculous paper hats at dinnertime . . . and the laughter moving to deep silence at three in the afternoon when we leaned up against one another like old tires, full of turkey and gravy and trifle and God knows how many slices of plum pudding.” —From ‘Every Christmas Morning Now, Every Christmas Morning Then’ by Colum McCann

Nostalgic, heart-warming, and festively fun, The Little Book of Christmas Memories is an uplifting collection of stories centred on memories of Christmases past, packed with contributions from some of Ireland’s best-loved writers, including Roddy Doyle, Alice Taylor, Colum McCann, Sinéad Moriarty and John Boyne. Festive stories vary from vivid recollections of a childhood Christmas spent in Ireland to travels as far as modern-day New York. Each unique story captures the range of emotions that come bundled up with Christmas memories. Without a doubt, The Little Book of Christmas Memories is the perfect fireside companion for this season – as well as an ideal Christmas present!
