Summary, etc.: A Christmas story gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create this enduring film. Here is young Ralphie Parker's shocking discovery that his decoder ring is really a device to promote Ovaltine; his mother and father's pitched battle over the fate of a lascivious leg lamp and, most crucially, Ralphie's unstoppable campaign to get Santa or anyone else to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." The pieces that comprise A Christmas story coalesce in a magical fashion to become an irresistible piece of Americana.
