Over the past year or so, Drew Magary has become one of my favorite writers. Whether in his novels and collections of anecdotes about being a parent, his writings for GQ and Deadspin, or just on Twitter, he never fails to amuse me.
I might have first discovered him through his holiday-themed posts on Deadspin. You might recall when he shared his daughter’s ridiculous Christmas list and broke it all down for us.
Another of his evergreen holiday assignments is tearing apart the preposterous Williams Sonoma catalog. As always, this year’s edition is a delightful read.
As a bonus, he also ripped apart the insane letter that Restoration Hardware CEO put in the front of RH’s holiday encyclopedia, err, catalog collection.
If you’ve got the holiday blues, these two reads might just be the thing to jump start your jolly.
