The beloved, bestselling classic that became the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY -- humorous and nostalgic Americana, reissued in a strikingly designed paperback edition. Before Garrison Keillor and Spalding Gray there was Jean Shepherd: a master monologist and writer who spun the materials of his all-American childhood into immensely resonant--and utterly hilarious--works of comic art. In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash represents one of the peaks of his achievement, a compound of irony, affection, and perfect detail that speaks across generations. In God We Trust, Shepherd's wildly witty reunion with his Indiana hometown, disproves the adage "You can never go back." Bending the ear of Flick, his childhood-buddy-turned-bartender, Shepherd recalls passionately his genuine Red Ryder BB gun, confesses adolescent failure in the arms of Junie Jo Prewitt, and relives a story of man against fish that not even Hemingway could rival. From pop art to the World's Fair, Shepherd's subjects speak with a universal irony and are deeply and unabashedly grounded in American Midwestern life, together rendering a wonderfully nostalgic impression of a more innocent era when life was good, fun was clean, and station wagons roamed the earth. A comic genius who bridged the gap between James Thurber and David Sedaris, Shepherd may have accomplished for Holden, Indiana, what Mark Twain did for Hannibal, Missouri.… (mer)

    persky: Daniel Pinkwater grew up listening to Shep's radio shows, and there is a common style of unexpected continuitity in the radio bits that are collected in his own autobiographies.

I liked this much less than the movie, "A Christmas Story." ( )

another solid work from Mr. Sheperd. it was great to see where all the stories from the movie A Christmas Story came from and even more impressive to see how they wove them together into the masterpiece of the movie. very well done.

back to the book- Ralphie visiting his home town after living in New York successfully (he nonchalantly says that he has a Rollex) and stopping by Flick's bar to reminisce was the glue that held the stories together in this one. A great premise and one that worked.

I admit that the strangest aspect for me was seeing these characters as adults and hearing about things they did when older. sometimes, it was even a bit shocking like when they off-handedly mention that Schwartz was shot down over Italy during the war and never found. somehow, these characters matter and it felt like a low blow to find out about Schwartz that way.

As always, Sheperd turned the nostalgic melancholy lurking in the midst of all of his stories into hilarious smirks at the silly things adults do to maintain their often ridiculous world and how kids survive to become a part of it. ( )

I read this a few times as a kid and loved the way he could paint a word portrait of a place so distant from my experience, both in space and time. ( )
