by Terry Pratchett (Gollancz, 1996); audiobook read by Nigel Planer (Isis, 1999)


Pratchett might belabour the point, yet his stark critique of Christmas is so lavishly adorned that the humour tends to dominate. Perhaps unsurprisingly for a black comedy, it is Death (no less) and his granddaughter who bring the magic back to Hogswatchnight.
