Simon, Hoggar:  The Hamster That Loved Puccini: The Seven Modern Sins of Christmas Round-robin Letters
Book Number: 44146
Atlantic Books 2005  2005  Small 8vo hardcover 176pp index, b/w illus. very good+. / Very good+ d/w. Simon Hoggart is back with a new treasure trove of Christmas round robins. And this time they illustrate the seven deadly sins of their writers, including boastfulness (dazzlingly clever children who play the saxophone and ski for Britain); smugness (their job, their house, their holidays are all perfect); tiny-mindedness (do we really need to be told how to start a jigsaw by looking for the straight bits?); whimsy (letters written by pets or babies); and the dreaded over-sharing, in which every illness and operation is described in minute, unwanted detail.
