Christmas in New York by Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson, OBE is an award-winning English writer, who became famous with her first book, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, a semi-autobiographical novel about a sensitive teenage girl rebelling against conventional values. Tonight's story is taken from Christmas Days which contains a dozen short stories — and a dozen recipes — in honour of the 12 days of the season. "It’s an odd little collection, perfect for stuffing the stockings of your eccentric relatives." Washington Post.
