“Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story”

From NPR, to stream or download: Paul Auster reads “Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story.”

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it.

Before I read this--just tell me: is this one of those stories like 'Barrington Bunny' or the movie 'The Holly and the Ivy' that makes one want to toss a rope over the closet rod? Because we've already had a hard enough couple of weeks; (we're okay, but our grip on holiday cheer is getting a little slippery.) So I'm asking for advance warning; wave me off if it's anything close to a shaggy dog story or a misanthropic reflection on modern society, please!

Oh, but Happy Christams! and I hope you have a lovely day!

It’s difficult to characterize this story. It’s certainly not a conventional Christmas story. It’s the story told at the end of the film Smoke, if that helps.
