A Christmas Story


Jean Shepherd October 2003
Broadway Books

ISBN #0767916220

Copyright: 2003

Based on the movie "A Christmas Story", this book combines the chapters from the two books the movie was based on - "In God We Trust - All Others Pay Cash" and "Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories and Other Disasters" Contrary to what it appears to be, the book is not a transcript of the screenplay or even close. It is merely a reprint of the short stories in their original printed form. Although Jean Shepherd is listed as the author, the book was printed 4 years after he passed away and was put together by the estate. He only wrote the stories contained in the book. On October 26, 2004 an audio books version was released by RH Audio on CD and Cassette, narrated by Dick Cavett.

THE STORIES: From "In God We Trust All Others Pay Cash" 1 - "Duel in the Snow, or Red Ryder Nails the Cleveland Street Kid" 2 - "The Counterfeit Secret Circle Member Gets the Message, or The Asp Strikes Again" 3 - "My Old Man and the Lascivious Special Award The Heralded The Birth of Pop Art" 4 - "Grover Dill and the Tasmanian Devil" From "Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories and Other Disasters" 5 - "The Grandstand Passion Play of Delbert and the Bumpus Hounds"
