Description
Originally published more than 50 years ago, this story collection is full of Stella Gibbons's sharp yet affectionate satire. The hilarious title story features Christmas dinner with the dismal Starkadder family before their cheerful cousin Flora arrived and turned Cold Comfort Farm around. With Adam playing Santa while draped in Mrs. Starkadder's shawls, the family shares their traditional "Christmas pudding," a mélange containing random objects of doom foretelling the coming year: a coffin nail for death, a bad sixpence for financial ruin, and a menthol cone to indicate that the lucky recipient will go "blind wi' headache."
