The perfect Christmas gift: three festive tales from the brilliant pen of Kate Atkinson.
'Lucy would have challenged anyone not to cry at the sight of their child in a Nativity play. Even a sheepish Maude, even a scowling Beatrice - currently attempting a Chinese burn on an adjacent angel.
A shepherd shouted something incomprehensible to Joseph. One of the Wise Men wet himself. Beatrice waved enthusiastically - a little too enthusiastically - at Lucy from the angelic choir.
It was better than any religion, Lucy thought.'
