The Irish are traditionally tale-tellers arid Irish writers are acknowledged masters of the short story, whose work is never more entertaining than when their short fictions are woven around special events and occasions. Christmas is such an occasion and has brought out the best from the writers selected by Dermot Bolger for inclusion in this anthology.

The Dolmen Book of Christmas Stories collects writings by:

Anne Devlin
Brian Lynch
Pat McCabe

The book is entertaining, sometimes surprising in the approach to its theme, and is a splendid gift book.
