Thanksgiving Tales True Stories Of the Holiday in America Book Review

Thanksgiving Tales True Stories Of the Holiday in America  Edited By Brian D. Jaffe is a collection of forty eight stories, written by forty eight different writers from all across the country. From New York City to the Pacific Northwest, these authors share the happy, the sad, and the sometimes unpredictable outcomes of sharing Thanksgiving dinner. While most of the stories here are interesting and entertaining, I was very much surprised by so much family dysfunction these stories bring to light. I know that no one lives an Ozzy and Harriet life, but some of these people are portrayed as mean, unhappy, or at the very least, unkind. Is sharing Thanksgiving dinner with extended or immediate family really all this painful? The authors of these stories are all mostly unknown, though most all of them do have some kind of writing background. Thanksgiving Tales is definitely filled with an interesting variety of stories about this beloved American holiday.
