Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. He pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the beloved elements are here, the family's exploding furnace; the school bully; the wet tongue on a cold lamppost; and, of course, the lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking!
