Renowned journalist and essayist John Kendrick Bangs worked at the helm of many of the most important news magazines of his day -- and all the while, he was submitting his own short humor pieces, poems, and other blurbs to mass-market publications, often anonymously or using a pen name. This holiday-themed collection brings together some of Bangs' finest work, and it's sure to bring some festive cheer to you and yours.
