I Choose Darkness by Jenny Lawson


I CHOOSE DARKNESS is a very short essay about why Halloween is better than Christmas. In typical Jenny fashion, she meanders from topic to topic, before eventually settling on what Halloween was like for her as a kid in her rural religious community. There's a description (and photographs!) of some of the costumes her mother made for her (or that she made for herself), and a sort of taste of what the fall fair was like, which was probably the best part.

This is VERY short but I think if you enjoy reading comedic memoir-essays and also enjoy Halloween (and not Christmas), you'll like this, too.

3 out of 5 stars
