    Vet aqui una vegada, al Pol Nord, un caduc patriarca rialler que, per satisfer l'afany consumista dels prea-dults i les preadultes d'arreu del mon, subjugava els animals no humans i les criatures magiques... Quina barbaritat! No cal dir que la literatura i la tradicio festives, que tantes bones estones han fet passar a creients, neopagans i neopaganes, tambe han servit per perpetuar els injustos prejudicis de la nostra societat imperfecta. Afortunadament, i despres de segles d'obscurantisme, James Finn Garner ha decidit oferir un servei public en nom dels ciutadans i ciutadanes de be reescrivint aquests relats tan familiars per tal de reivindicar tambe els drets de les persones de neu, dels elfs, dels fantasmes disfuncionals, dels liders sindicalistes no humans, de les joguines pacifistes no sexistes i, fins i tot, dels vegans i les veganes. Sigui quin sigui el teu conte de Nadal preferit, en aquest llibre el trobaras transformat per deslliurar la nostra consciencia social del Fantasma dels Prejudicis Passats i revifar l'autentic esperit nadalenc. "e;James Finn Garner ha tunejat relats clssics d'aquestes festes amb voluntat pardica, sempre a favor de l'humor i subvertint l'esperit doctrinari. Un antioxidant per al greix d'aquestes festes"e;. Ona Salvans, Nvol"e;A Contes de Nadal polticament correctes descobrirem cinc relats que ens sn desconeguts i que es poden llegir durant tot l'any"e;. lvaro Muoz, Llegir en cas d'incendi

  • - A Memoir for the End of Time
    by James Finn Garner
    £6.49

    As the year 2000 bears down, the best-selling author of Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, James Finn Garner, confronts a series of monumental questions: Will we remember to order new checks from the bank? Did our invitation to the Kennedy New Year's party get lost in the mail again? Are we all poised on the brink of worldwide enlightenment or complete planetary destruction? Should you really bother investing in that Five-Year CD? "e;Tonight,"e; in the unforgettable words of The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, "e;We're gonna party like it's 1999."e; The end is near...or at least nearer than it used to be, says Garner. Humanity is wracked by millennial panic and apocalyptic anticipation -- or if it isn't already, just wait until it reads Garner's latest (and last?). In it, he sets off on a slightly-to-the-South-of-skeptical pilgrimage in search of the truth behind the end times predictions."e;

  • - Expanded edition with a new story: The duckling that was judged on its personal merits
    by James Finn Garner
    £6.49

    'Essential reading for adults of all ages ... the wisest, funniest, most thoughtful thing yet written on the subject of PC' ObserverIn this bestselling classic, James Finn Garner has rewritten classic stories for more enlightened times; from Snow White's relationship with seven vertically challenged men, Little Red Riding Hood, her grandma and the cross-dressing wolf who set up an alternative household based on mutual respect and cooperation, to the Emperor who was not naked but was endorsing a clothing-optional lifestyle.At last, here is bedtime reading free from prejudice and discrimination of witches, giants, dwarves, goblins and fairies everywhere. For anyone brought up on sexist, racist, sizeist and ethnocentrist reading matter, James Finn Garner's stories have been purged of the influence of an insensitive cultural past to become fables for our times.For those bewildered by modern sensibilities, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories is a witty take on the sometimes over-careful ways in which we speak and think.
