In the bleak midwinter, long, long ago

I love this post from Jeanette Winterson about Christmas and ritual. Her mentioned memoir WHY BE HAPPY WHEN YOU CAN BE NORMAL? was one of my favorite books of the year, and to quote the worst song of the year, I think you might like it. It sits at the oft crossed intersection of "books about terrible childhoods" and "books about how writers became writers."
