Description
John Grisham abandons the legal genre and turns his attention to that most sacred of American cows, Christmas. When their daughter Blair leaves for a Peace Corps stint in Peru, Luther and Nora Krank realize they will be alone for Christmas. Suddenly, the holiday has become not the usual $6,100 nightmare, but the delightful dream of a te-day Caribbean cruise. But not if their neighbors have anything to say about the Kranks' subversive scheme.
