Iceland has a national tradition called Jolabokaflod, or the “Christmas Book Flood,” and I picture it every year as a giant blue wave of books flowing into Christmas Eve when Icelanders exchange books and chocolate.
Iceland is my kind of place.
My chocolate recommendations could fill their own column, so for now let’s focus on books and this season’s wave of Southern California’s best.
Coyote Doggirl by Lisa Hanawalt
The only way to describe this feminist coyote-dog-girl cartoon western adventure by producer/production designer (“BoJack Horseman” on Netflix), humorist (Lucky Peach’s humorous food column) and award-winning cartoonist, Lisa Hanawalt, is awesome.
May your holiday season be filled with books and chocolate.
