The Scrapbook is delighted to commend to readers a new ebook from our contributing editor Joseph Bottum. Nativity: A Christmas Tale “re-imagines Melchior, the Wise Man who brought gold, as a wealthy cancer patient adrift in the American Midwest, picking up a menagerie of strays as he fights his way through a snowstorm.” Readers who followed our advice in Christmases past will already have enjoyed Bottum’s The Christmas Plains, a memoir of his South Dakota boyhood, as well as last year’s holiday ebook Wise Guy—like Nativity a reimagining of the Gifts of the Magi. Have we mentioned that nothing beats an ebook as a last-minute gift? Hie thee to without delay.
