CBC Radio has broadcast countless Christmas stories and poems over the years. Listeners have rejoiced in the wry humour of Grace Paley's tale "The Loudest Voice" and laughed out loud at poet John Julius Norwich's clever twist on "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Now, for the first time, these seasonal treasures can be enjoyed on CD. An International Christmas brings together seven stories and eight poems by well-known authors from Canada, the United States, Britain, and Germany. With something for all ages, this entertaining audio compilation includes heartwarming Christmas fiction by Margaret Laurence, Roy MacGregor, Tim Wynne-Jones, Maureen Hull, Annie Dillard, Grace Paley, and Heinrich Böll. It also features poetry by such celebrated Canadian poets as P.K. Page, Milton Acorn, and John Terpstra, as well as Britain's John Julius Norwich and Wendy Cope. Experience a northern Christmas in Roy MacGregor's beloved fable "The Christmas Spoon." Step into the shoes of a repentent German husband in a touching story by Heinrich B�ll, and consider the aftermath of all those Christmas-morning sweets in the hilarious American poem "The Night After Christmas." An International Christmas makes enjoying Christmas literature as easy as playing Christmas music. So put another log on the fire and listen in!
