THE LATKE WHO COULDN’T STOP SCREAMING: A CHRISTMAS STORY
Back in print at last, the beloved holiday classic of tormented seasonal tubers: The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story.
Latkes are potato pancakes served at Hanukkah. 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 Hanukkah 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.
Praise for The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story
“Go ahead and cover this book in red, stamp it with gold foil and label it a Christmas story—Lemony Snicket fans won’t be fooled. […] Embedding a satirical sting in his elegantly cadenced prose, the author up-ends any number of conventions in what may be his funniest book yet.”
