They say you can t judge a book by its cover Fair enough But there are some books that you should be able to make a fairly accurate guess about the subject matter based on the title For example if you picked up a book titled The Life and Times of George Washington First President of the United States you would probably be surprised and than a little upset if the book turned out to be about Millard Fill Now we come to the title of the book being reviewed Nothing With Strings NPR s Beloved Holiday Stories by Bailey White Even if you were not familiar with White s witty National Public Radio commentaries on life in the Deep South it would not seem too much of a stretch for the Fearless Reader to expect heartwarming holiday stories And this is where the cover does come in to play For the cover shows a red cushioned window seat with an open box surrounded by a string of Christmas lights A beat up old red pickup truck the universal hieroglyph for rural southern environs is driving off in the distance These two pieces of evidence would seem to suggest that the book s stories are rural in nature and that Christmas is very likely the holiday noted in the title But ladies and gentlemen of the jury I submit to you that even though it looks like a duck and it uacks like a duck what we have here is one big turkey of a book In fact Nothing With Strings has nothing to do with any holidays Instead these stories are concentrated on the themes of aging dementia and death Not exactly the kind of stories that make you want to deck the halls But it s the marketing department that should be faulted not Bailey s writing In fact most of these stories in a compilation with a different title would be if not exactly enjoyable at least capable of being appreciated for their literary merit Two stories The Bus Ride in which the lives of five bus passengers and the driver are slowly revealed and Almost Gone about the last memory of an Alzheimer s patient are wonderfully crafted However as holiday entertainment they re likely to make you want to stick a candy cane in your eye Buyer beware

This book left me feeling confused frustrated even deceived First off Can someone please explain to me what was going on in the story The Long Black Veil I ve been wracking my brain trying to figure that one out and still it eludes me This is my first experience with the writing of Bailey White so I had no clue of her writing style But it says very clearly on the cover that it s a collection of beloved holiday stories by NPR along with a charming drawing of an unwrapped present and Christmas lights on a window seat I generally trust NPR to provide high uality content and now here s the crux of the issue to provide at least a somewhat accurate description of what I m about to experience But they couldn t have been further off the mark which is why I feel deceived Yes I know that s a strong word and maybe I m making too much of the whole thing but the description provided is just so blatantly wrong that I half wonder if it got put on this book s cover by mistake These stories or at least the first three which is as far as I read are sad confusing feel like they didn t have a proper ending and in no way related to any holiday Christmas or otherwise I gave it two stars because the narration for the audiobook was pleasant and White does seem to have a way with words even if it s not my style
