Icy Indeed

The New York Times has a rather cold reaction to David Sedaris's re-released Holidays on Ice:

"Now the author has decided to take this bitters-soaked little fruitcake of a book, tack on a few extra stories from his more recent publications, garnish it with one that is entirely fresh and wrap the whole thing in a shiny new jacket. Well, pardon me for feeling as if I've been regifted!"
