One of my all-time favourite Xmas stories: "Auggie Wren's Christmas Story" by Paul Auster.
The story also constitutes the first part of the closing chapter (5. Auggie) of the 1995 movie "Smoke", which I've embedded below.
The movie is directed by Wayne Wang and Paul Auster.
Writer: Paul Auster.
Leading roles in the scene: Harvey Keitel and William Hurt.
I hope you enjoy this great story-telling as much as I do.
I wish you all a fantastic Christmas and all the best for 2015!
