Praise for the collection

"In Christmas at the Four Corners of the Earth by the poet Blaise Cendrars—a leading figure in the Paris of Appollinaire and Picasso—each Christmas, pleasurable or grotesque, is evoked in brilliant detail. Everything that happens, it appears, is a matter of chance, but the poet chooses . . . Christmas, and the pieces fly together and give us a life that is like no other." —Louis Simpson
