More > result of this indiscretion, Ronnie became somewhat manic, confused, sleepless and, according to his wife, Helen, “utterly, preposterously, altogether selfish.” This strange tree and additional elements, such as 13 foot-tall African grasses, a purloined letter, a Cello with a life of its own and a mirror that doesn’t quite reflect what it observes, turn The Upas Tree into the strangest Christmas story I have yet read: part detective story, part ghost story, and an unusual love story. In spite of its oddity, or perhaps because of it, The Upas Tree is also a compelling read, Christmas or no.< Less
