  • An Almost Perfect Christmas

  • Nina Stibbe, bestselling author of Love, Nina and Reasons to Be Cheerful, delves hilariously into the festive season with the perfect stocking filler!

    'This book is the seasonal garnish we all need' Observer

    "My mother is not a foodie. But for as long as I can remember, once a year, she becomes possessed of a profound and desperate need to serve up a perfect roast turkey. Faced with a walk into the village though, she might think 'oh, f*** it' and decide to get a frozen one from Bejams on the 23rd and leave it to defrost in the downstairs toilet for not quite 48 hours."

    From perennially dry turkeys to Christmas pudding fires, from the round robin code of conduct to the risks and rewards of re-gifting, An Almost Perfect Christmas is an ode to the joy and insanity of the most wonderful time of the year.
