Item description for I FLUNKED SANTA CLAUS by Joyce Holsclaw...

Feminist before there were feminists, single parent before the term was coined, teacher with uncompromising standards when times demanded laxity, Joyce Holsclaw is all these and more. Inspired by her grandson's queries about life in the "good old days", here with humor and irony she recounts four score years of experience and wisdom only hard times, war, divorce, love and seventy-nine years can teach. Readers for whom depression and world war are more than words will recognize in these stories both timeless truth and their own lives. For the young, I Flunked Santa Claus offers a view into the world from which theirs has sprung. So great is the contrast, they may well doubt the parentage. But regardless of age or politics, these simple, yet eloquent stories will leave no reader unmoved.

Reviews - What do customers think about I FLUNKED SANTA CLAUS?

This book made me never want to put it down. If you are over 50 you'll love every word of it. It will make you both laugh and cry. That's how true it is.
A very fine and entertaining autobiography  Apr 14, 2003
I Flunked Santa Claus was written by Joyce Holsclaw, an 80-year-old woman who was an early feminist, a single parent, and a demanding teacher. With humor and irony Joyce engagingly recounts over seventy years of her experiences, blending a zany sense of humor with insights into the social and political events of her times. A very fine and entertaining autobiography.
Excellent from cover to cover!  Mar 6, 2003
This book was absolutley amazing from one cover to the other. It's the real account of one womans life through the depression, world war II, and teaching in our problematic public high school system. I strongly recommend this novel for anyone who's seeking to understand this womans era and generation!
