Wishin' and Hopin': A Christmas Story (Compact Disc)
December 2009 Indie Next List
“Wally Lamb's Wishin' and Hopin' is a sure winner for laughter and fun this holiday season.”
— Margaret, Osondu Booksellers, Waynesville, NC
Wally Lamb, the beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hour I First Believed, I Know This Much Is True, and She's Come Undone, delivers a holiday treat with Wishin' and Hopin'--an unforgettable novella that captures the warmth and joy of the holiday season. Poignant and hilarious, in a vein similar to Jean Shepherd's A Christmas Story and David Sedaris's The Santaland Diaries, Lamb's Christmas tale focuses on a feisty parochial school fifth grader named Felix Funicello--a distant cousin of the iconic Annette.
