Alex Bernstein Makes us Laugh with ‘Miserable Holiday Stories’

GameStop, Inc.

Satirist, Alex Bernstein Makes us Laught with Miserable Holiday Stories (20 Festive Failures That Are Worse Than Yours).

Alex Bernstein (not to be mistaken with the retired NFL player or the glass blower of the same name) has released his hilariously uncomfortable third installment of the Miserable series, entitled, Miserable Holiday Stories (20 Festive Failures That Are Worse Than Yours) available now through his website and Skyhorse Publishing.

Bernstein, is a satirist and humorist that knows how to touch a nerve and the heart in his storytelling methods that can only remind us that our own family traumas aren’t as bad as they could be and we greatly thank him for that.

Official Press Release:

What do Jewish Elvis impersonators, a kidnapped Santa Claus, confused parents, horrific holiday traffic, unbreakable toys and the ever-heroic Bicycle Boys have in common? They all provide fuel for the Yuletide fire in humorist Alex Bernstein’s “miserable” collection of short stories centered on Christmas, Hanukkah and the overall malaise that descends on those in winter climates.

Miserable Holiday Stories (20 Festive Failures That Are Worse Than Yours) is the yin to the Hallmark Channel’s yang, with hefty doses of seasonal satire presented in the form of 20 short stories you can read while the babka is baking or anytime you need a respite from manufactured holiday merriment.

Tales include:

• “Blue Christmas”

• “Coloring Books”

• “The Unbreakable Toy”

• “The Smoking Lounge”

• “Brownie Mix” (A Glimmer Train Very Short Fiction Award finalist)

• “The #[email protected]!# Bicycle Boys Save Christmas, Again!” (Also released as a single on Amazon)

• And many more!

Sure, Christmas and Hanukkah are supposed to be full of laughter, generosity and quality time with friends and family. But everyone knows the truth: the holidays are stressful at best and downright depressing at worst. Miserable Holiday Stories offers tongue-in-cheek escapism in the form of quirky, thought-provoking tales, that just might prompt you to appreciate something about your own holiday experiences.
