Over the last 20 years, the author of this book had been sending out Christmas crackers - a commonplace selection of prose and poetry - to his friends instead of Christmas cards. What began as a personal choice of literary odds and ends has now become a substantial collection. Assembled here are the crackers from the second decade, featuring subjects as varied as pig-sticking and the Papacy, from contributors as diverse as Nelson and Freya Stark.
